Visitors to Markenfields first Mop-up tour of the year were treated to the sight of five,


small grey bundles of fluff bobbing around on the moat - five healthy cygnets hatched the

week before and greeted the visitors with their first foray on to the water that morning.

The Black Swans at Markenfield have traditionally been named by the family, and will

names beginning with the letter S (or with a C if sounds like an S) - hence the current pair

are Sam and Cinders. But with five new arrivals to name, inspiration is running short!

This year, and for the first time ever, the naming is to be thrown open to the public with

Owners Lady Deirdre and Ian Curteis asking for suggestions as to what the Cygnets could

be called.

You can suggest one name, or try to name all five! Simply send your suggestion, along with

your name and address to The Administrator, Markenfield Hall, Ripon, North Yorkshire.

HG4 3AD or to info@markenfield.com or search for Markenfield Hall on Facebook or

Twitter and post your suggestions there.

The winner - or winners - will be chosen by Lady Deirdre Curteis and they will receive a

family ticket (two adults and three children) for entrance to the Hall during the annual

open days, which this year will be from 6 to 19 May and 17 to 30 June.
