Latest Update -25th March

Further to information from the Government and BH and HPA the weekend information has now been confirmed. All of you currently staying on the Park will be allowed to remain here.

See Below.

Guidance provided by DCMS:

Should hotels and other accommodation providers shut today?

Businesses should follow the guidance and take steps to close for commercial use as quickly as possible. However, full consideration should be given to the possible exclusions in terms of which residents should be allowed to remain. And any decision to close should be implemented in full compliance with the social distancing guidelines.

Does the closure apply to Hotels, hostels, BnBs, campsites, caravan parks, and boarding houses for commercial/leisure use, including short term lets e.g. Air B n B?

Yes. This applies to any business providing holiday accommodation, including short term lets bar very specific exclusions.

What are the exclusions?

Hotels and other accommodation providers should be able to remain open if

  1. They are part of the key worker / vulnerable groups / health response.
  2. There is a specific need for some or all of the site to remain open (e.g. they are housing people who have been flooded out of their homes and/or being used to provide services under local authority homelessness duties/powers or by other public services to provide emergency accommodation).
  3. Some people live full time in holiday parks and caravan parks – if that is their primary residence they can remain

We took the decision yesterday to send Ryan and Kevin home for the time being. Mike is also now not working, but is on Park should we get the odd emergency or feels the need he would like to get out and cut the grass. So we will be running a skeleton work force for the foreseeable future of just Peter and myself. We will be on hand for any problems or issues you have whilst here.

But please remember to keep a 2 meter distance from us.

The main house did its first take away meal last night of fish and chips, mushy peas and dessert. We took up the offer and have to say it was very good. Please make use of this facility, even if it is only once a week. It is just helping the house keep its chef’s employed. Today is bread baking day, so if you haven’t ordered a loaf, you can go into the front door of the house and order/buy a loaf or order an evening meal. Thank you all of you for your continued support, and stay safe.
