Sewerby Hall and Gardens opens for 2011

SEWERBY Hall and Gardens will re-open to the public for the new season tomorrow, on Saturday April 16, with a range of fun activities for all the family.

Marie Gascoigne, facility manager at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, said: “This weekend is the official start of our 2011 season and I am looking forward to the many varied events we have lined up for our visitors.

“Young or old, there is something for everyone this year and a visit to Sewerby Hall and Gardens is a great way to start the Easter holidays.”
