North east caravan park klaxon! It’s the news we’ve been waiting for – The Government’s roadmap out of lockdown has brought a glimmer of hope across our holiday parks in Northumberland and South Tyneside.
Following the Government’s four-step roadmap earlier this week, family owned and run Northumbrian Leisure is planning to reopen all of its North East caravan and touring/motorhome parks from Monday April 12.
Park owner Nigel Thompson said: “It really is the news we’ve all been hoping for, that all being well, we’ll be able to reopen our caravan parks and touring sites from Monday April 12th, providing, of course, there are no delays to the Government’s roadmap and that everyone continues to follow the rules.
“This is great news, as we know how much everyone is looking forward to coming back to their holiday homes and we can’t wait to welcome you all back and see the parks come back to life once again. We’re a family owned and run park and there is such a strong sense of community about all of our parks. We’ve had so many really lovely letters and messages from caravan owners telling us how much they miss being here and all of the team. Hopefully it won’t be long until we can welcome everyone back to your caravans and parks.”
Nigel added: “There are rules we’ll all have to follow – the Government states that accommodation must be self-contained and only used by the same household. This means that for our touring sites at Glororum and Sandhaven shared facilities including our toilet and shower blocks must remain closed until we get further guidance, which means owners of touring caravans/motorhomes will have to use the facilities in their own caravans or motorhomes.
“We continue to monitor Government guidelines closely and we’ll be contacting our owners and holiday makers nearer the time to confirm our reopening. In the meantime, thank you for your continued support and we really can’t wait to welcome you back soon to your favourite north east caravan park.
“Until then, we’re busy completing our exciting new development at Golden Sands, Water’s Edge which will offer 50 amazing new static caravan plots here on the Northumberland Coast at Cresswell and carrying out essential maintenance. It’s always important to us that our parks look the best they can and we’re making sure they are absolutely pristine to welcome owners back to again. Everyone’s got a spring in their step. It’s given everyone something to look forward to.”
