Award-winning holiday park goes topsy-turvy for Comic Relief 

Staff dressed up for Comic Relief

Multi award-winning holiday park Cofton Holidays has raised vital funds for a global charity by encouraging its staff to try something new. 

As part of the Cofton Comic Relief Job Swap, staff at the South Devon holiday park gained experience in different areas of the family business, all in aid of Comic Relief. Thanks to the support of Cofton’s guests, the team raised £200 for Comic Relief, a well-known charity that strives to create a just world free from poverty.   

Kicking off the day, Grounds Manager Scott swapped his ride-along mower for a cash register, taking the place of Gerry as Cofton’s Shop Manager. Scott tried his hand at serving customers and taking deliveries whilst Gerry got to work clearing the many leaves across the 80-acre site.

Holiday Park Adds A Hint Of Luxury With HSBC UK Support

A Pembrokeshire holiday park, Bonville’s Court Country Park, has secured a six-figure finance package from HSBC UK to develop a new luxury spa and holiday let in Saundersfoot.

The upgrades to the park, due to complete in March 2019, will include building two new two-bedroom cottages and a modern penthouse suite to meet rising demand from couples for short stay breaks.

"Gramping" rise signals success for Cumbria park

Young families joining forces with grandparents for holidays have seen a marked rise this year, according to a major Lake District holiday park.

Silverdale park in South Cumbria says that "gramping", as it's known, has been making a big comeback after decades of decline. But park owner Michael Holgate believes that teaming-up with gran and grandad is about more than simply spreading the costs of a break.

 

He says that multi-generation holidays are a chance for extended families to spend quality time together during their increasingly busy working lives. Gramping also boosts regional tourism economies, says Michael, because the larger party sizes mean more money being spent with local businesses.
