Free open day at Normanby Hall

NORMANBY Hall Country Park is celebrating the start of the 2012 season by holding a free open day on Sunday, April 1.

It will be the first chance for visitors to see the new Stories Through Suitcases exhibition in the costume gallery which is showcasing costumes from North Lincolnshire’s many cultures.

There is also a temporary exhibition at the Farming Museum which tells the potted history of Elswick Hopper Cycle Co. Ltd, of Barton, and the story of North Lincolnshire’s only Olympic medal winner, Albert ‘Lal’ White.

Upcoming events will also be promoted on the day and visitors can learn about the new Tots’ Time and Reminiscence’ sessions in the Farming Museum.

Season tickets for the 300 acre Scunthorpe site can also be bought with family season tickets costing £20.

Individual season tickets cost £12.50 and two people can purchase one for £16.

There is an early bird discount of £1 off all season tickets until May 31.

Axholme Central ward member Councillor David Robinson is lead member for Asset and Estate Management, Sport, Leisure and Culture at North Lincolnshire Council.

He said: “I would encourage people to visit Normanby Hall Country Park as it is a brilliant place for everyone.

“There is a wide range of activities to take part in and the season ticket offers superb value for money.”
