On a wonderful late summers evening, Sewerby Park’s walled gardens was the setting for an evening of strawberries and cream, prosecco and the sound of live music with violinist Ben Couper wafting in the warm summer evening air.

The event held on Friday (2 September) was the first of what is hoped to become an annual event in aid of the Bridlington Lifeboats. The evening was well attended by all ages with people enjoying a delightful evening in one of the east coasts jewel gardens. With the aroma of summer blooms filling the evening air guests were able to stroll amongst the gardens, take part in the RNLI themed quiz with clues hidden in the undergrowth and plants whilst sipping on prosecco and feasting on strawberries and cream.

The event was held in aid of raising funds for the Bridlington RNLI, Bob Taylor (Water Safety Officer) stated, ‘The RNLI gardens even is a first for both Bridlington Lifeboats and Sewerby Hall, we are thrilled with the response from supporters coming out to enjoy these lovely gardens and helping save lives at sea. We would like to thank the visitors for their generosity and the management and staff of Sewerby Hall for letting us use the walled gardens. Hopefully this will become an annual event’.
