Houghton Hall Park - More Public Opportunities to Get Involved


Houghton Hall Park Renaissance & Renewal Project are offering the public further opportunities to be involved in local Heritage. 

On Saturday 1st March, there is a public meeting from 10am at the Pavilion on The Green - an opportunity to find out what's going on, to get involved, and find out how the public can help.

On Saturday, 8th March a masterclass will be running at the Pavilion on The Green from 10am to 12pm for Market Research, and for 1pm to 3pm for Visitor Counts and observations.

During March and April volunteers will then be invited to conduct surveys, depending on how much time the individuals can spare.
