Latest news from Wentworth Woodhouse

A recent email from Wentworth Woodhouse said that The House will be open as soon as it is safe to do so.

Hopefully the gardens will be open early in July, along with outdoor events.

The results of the art competition: Life and Times of The Big House; were posted, and there will be an installation in the Autumn on the front lawn called The Flock. This will consist of 10,000 wooden birds, on which people can write their experiences of the pandemic.

If any members have tickets for future events, they will be contacted by Andrew Jones – The Bookings Officer, as soon as possible.

In order to raise money for the The House, 500 original Westmoreland roof tiles have been made into unique works of art, and are on sale for £200 each.  Each one has been put into a beautiful box.  Other methods of fund raising are by shopping with Ebay, John Lewis, Argos, ASOS, M&S, Expedia etc.  Further details can be obtained through the Wentworth Woodhouse website.

It is good to know that the roof repairs are back on track.

A committee meeting is planned for September 20th, after which, the newsletter will be circulated.  Hopefully, there will be news about the 2021 reunion!
