New crematorium to hold an open day
A community open day will be held at the new multi-million-pound Hambleton Crematorium near Thirsk.
The local community will be welcome to look around the new facility between 11am and 3pm on Thursday 24 February.
As well as a tour of the facility, progress photographs taken during the development will be available for guests to view and light refreshments will be available.
The 22-acre site named Maple Park, is close to both the A1 and A19 and includes a service hall which will accommodate approximately 120 mourners plus additional room for standing. There is also an entrance foyer, waiting lobby, offices and a family room.
As well as this, the single storey facility includes a wake facility and café with beautiful views out over the Hambleton hills.
The site also offers a memorial garden, meadows and a wooded area making it a calm and peaceful place for reflection or for scattering ashes.
