Free open day at police treatment centre

Have your say

THE police treatment centre in Harrogate is opening its doors as part of Heritage open days.

The St Andrew’s centre in Harlow Moor Road will be open on Saturday, September 10 and Sunday, September 11, between 2pm and 5pm.

Visitors will be able to find out more about its founder, Catherine Gurney, and its 113-year history. Tours of the recently refurbished centre, including a physiotherapy unit and rehabilitation gym, will be given every half-hour beginning at 2.30pm. Visitors will also be able to enjoy the award-winning gardens and refreshments will be on offer for a small donation to the charity.

PR and fundraising manager Gemma Pettman said: “St Andrew’s has been part of the Harrogate landscape for over 100 years and has such an interesting history but many people don’t know we’re here.

“This is the first time we have taken part in heritage open days and hope we can give our visitors a great insight into the hidden gem on their doorstep.”

Heritage open days celebrate English architecture and culture by offering free access to properties normally closed to the public.
