Bridport Festivities and New Camping Pods
It’s been a festive couple of weeks in Bridport with the Food Festival celebrating its 10th year Anniversary. I helped out on the Saturday night (15th June) flipping burgers for the Bridport Rotary food stand. It was a very fun evening and it was great to catch up with friends and colleagues. The Bridport Roundtable incorporated a Beer festival into the food festival on the Friday 14th and Saturday 15th with over 60 real ales and 20 ciders to choose from, all of which had been produced locally, it was a really fun few days and I think enjoyed by all.
For Father’s Day the annual charity breakfast brunch was held at the Symene Cricket Pavilion in Symondsbury, organised by the Highway Farm and the Countryside & Coastal B&B group. In previous years I‘ve donated trays of eggs to the charity event but unfortunately this year my chickens haven’t been laying as well as I would have liked and couldn’t perform for the occasion. All the funds that were raised were donated to Prostate Cancer and Cancer Research UK. I went with my family and we had a very enjoyable brunch and the rain didn’t dampen the joyful atmosphere.
After the brunch I then visited Kingston Maurward College for an open day, the college offer excellent training programmes for the Holiday Park industry and I wanted to find out more information on the NVQ 2, 3 and Foundation Degree. I believe it is so important for people to participate in these training programmes which all help to establish quality and knowledge when in the work place.
At Highlands End we have had a change around with our Camping Pods and have now moved them to an area that can supply electricity. We decided that the new location would still provide good views and be much more beneficial to customers with an electricity supply. We will soon be having a few more camping pods delivered to Golden Cap Holiday Park and with the increasing demand the innovative ‘No tent’ option I believe is appealing to families who want to go camping but don’t want the hassle of setting up the tent whilst supervising the children – a stress free holiday which everybody always wants.
