A lucky Scarborough woman has been presented with a one-year membership of English Heritage by Coast and Vale Community Action (Cavca).

Lucy Wilkins attended the Totally Socially family day at the castle, which is run by English Heritage, on 9 July.

She used one of the free tickets printed in Scarborough Review and was entered into a prize draw with 950 others.

Lucy said she was delighted to win the pass, which will give her unlimited admission to the castle and all other English Heritage properties for a year.

“The last time I was at the castle was 10 years ago so I will be making full use of this membership”, Lucy said. 

Cavca’s David Stone, who co-ordinates the Totally Socially project, said: “We are very pleased to present Lucy with this membership and hope she enjoys using it.

“Cavca thought that offering this membership would give an added incentive to attend our event at the castle. Judging by the numbers who came and the 100% positive feedback we got, it worked”.

The family day was part of the Totally Socially Long Weekend, an annual event to help promote thriving communities across the borough of Scarborough and the district of Ryedale.
