North Yorkshire Water Park opens event hire space named after 251 Squadron

North Yorkshire Water Park, located on the Dawnay Estate, has announced the opening of its new function space for hire called the 251 Events Room.

The space is named after the First World War Royal Flying Corps airfield on the estate that was used by the 251 Squadron.

David Steel, chief executive of the Dawnay Estate, said: “It’s very exciting to launch this new offering and with a rightful nod to the war heroes who were stationed on this land over a century ago.
