Lytham Hall has a new ‘equine’ addition – and the public is being invited the give it a name.

A wooden rocking horse has been donated to the Hall by Bolton-based craftsman Peter Pemrick from Bolton and was unveiled by Fylde Mayor Coun Linda Nulty at a successful open day held there.

More than 140 people went along to the event to hear short talks given by the Heritage Lottery funded team and the hall’s activity plan officer Marianne Blaauboer said: “Visitors to the open day were very impressed with Mr Pemrick’s handywork.

“The rocking horse will be part of the Hall’s collection and we will be encouraging children to have a go.

“But what is the horse’s name? Fyldener, Brunel and 93 were all winning racehorses owned by the Clifton family or it could be a name entirely unrelated to the history of the Hall.

“We are inviting people to put their ideas for a name for the rocking horse into the tin at Lytham Hall’s tea room and they have the chance to win two tickets to one of our open air theatre shows.”

Closing date for entries is May 15 and further details are available from (01253) 736652.
