Sewerby Hall and Gardens activities for families gain national recognition

Wed, 15 Jul 2020

The team at Sewerby Hall and Gardens are celebrating after Kids in Museums listed their activities in the Top Ten things for families to do during lockdown.

Kids in Museums is a national registered charity which works with museums nationwide to make them more welcoming to children, young people, and families.

The organisation has listed several activities at Sewerby Hall and Gardens in its Top Ten, including learning how to lay the breakfast table like an Edwardian butler; making a bug hotel; spotting the difference; and discovering Amy Johnson's record breaking flight to Australia in the De Havilland Gipsy Moth aircraft. The activities cater for a range of different ages, including those for school-aged children and a section dedicated to the under 5s.

Lucy Cooke, under fives learning co-ordinator, said : "We worked hard during lockdown to ensure that our youngest visitors - and their families - had lots to do, and I am very pleased to see national recognition of our efforts! We do offer a great deal for children, and even though we cannot offer our usual range of activities at the present time in the house and gardens, we can certainly make them available online."
