An exciting new pilot scheme to encourage and support communities and residents to be physically, mentally and socially active has launched on a trial basis in four towns in the East Riding. Hopes are high that local residents will get involved and improve their wellbeing in Active Towns.
Active Towns sees East Riding of Yorkshire Council working closely in the community with residents and local clubs, groups and organisations to expand their community resources and help to develop wellbeing activities with residents.
The Treasure House welcomes families from Friday, 9 October to Saturday, 31 October for a Where’s Wally extravaganza.
Visitors will be able to have fun finding Wally lurking amongst the displays in the Treasure House Museum and Beverley Art Gallery in the Where’s Wally Spooky Museum Search. Alongside Wally will be a set of letters, spelling out a spooky word. Families are invited to go all the way and come dressed as Wally!
A brand new event, unique to the area, will brighten up December at Sewerby Hall and Gardens this year: Enchanted Winter Woodland will take visitors on a magical outdoor journey of spectacular sounds and lights.
Young visitors to any one of the East Riding Museums venues can take part in the newly updated Creative Families Awards.

A new and fun set of resources for under 5s to explore Sewerby Zoo has been launched.

Lots of fun is to be found this February as the Sewerby Squirrels sessions will take place at Sewerby Hall and Gardens.
