Sewerby Hall and Gardens has begun its search for talented children with its annual design a flower bed competition, of which the closing date is Saturday, 31 March 2018.
The theme is the Royal National Lifeboat Institute (RNLI), based around the fact that, in 2018, the RNLI will have been providing a beach lifeguarding service for ten years on behalf of East Riding of Yorkshire Council.
Children from all East Riding of Yorkshire schools will be invited to submit a design which will then be translated into planting the flower bed located in front of the Orangery.
In previous years, this bed has seen designs based on our Beside the Seaside Exhibition, Amy Johnson, the Tour de Yorkshire, the 300th anniversary of Sewerby Hall, the Olympics, the Diamond Jubilee and the 900th anniversary of Bridlington Priory and complements the more formal aspect of the flower beds located elsewhere in the estate.
The 2017 winning entry was designed by Milly Harman-Bevan of Year Six from Roos CE Primary School who is pictured with her mum and Martin Burnhill, senior coastal service manager.
Marie Gascoigne, facility manager at Sewerby Hall and Gardens, said: "This competition always proves very popular with school children in and we continue to get a lot of fantastic entries. This year we are looking for something special to go towards raising awareness of the great work the RNLI lifeguards carry out on our local beaches."
