Earlier this week the very dedicated organising committee and their team of helpers once again held a very successful evening fete to raise funds for the RNLI who completed a very impressive exercise near the beach with the Coastguard Helicopter. The event usually raises between £7, 000 and £11,000.
The Portland Helicopter is very important to Lyme Bay and if you would like to help save the service from government cuts, please sign the e-petition ‘Save the Portland Coastguard Helicopter’ at http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/36619
The whole community appeared to be behind the fete and the raising of funds and the traffic management organised by Golden Cap HolidayPark using the concrete road of Mill Lane worked very well. We are very lucky to have Mill Lane has a second route to the A35.
On 3 August 2012, a group walking the 180 miles of the coastline to raise money for the Royal Marines Charitable Trust Fund stayed the night at Golden Cap. We were very pleased to help and they had a very good evening in the Clockhouse where a further £180 was raised for the charity https://www.facebook.com/JourneyForJames.
At the end of July, we received our ‘scores’ from the Customer Feedback Service and we were a little worried that the staff changes at Golden Cap towards the of June would have had an impact on customer service; particularly with so many changes and so much for the new team to learn. However, we received some good news with the scores being 1% higher than the national average – what an achievement.
Well done to all the members of the new team and all the staff across the parks who have provided lots of support. We are receiving good comments about the diferent approach together with some ideas to improve the park including the toilets and showers in 2013……….after one step backwards we appear to have taken three steps forwards.
Although we have had a very quiet two weeks over the olympic period, all of us at Team WDLH were pleased to see the success of Team GB and the number of Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals …and we applaud all those who had the commitment to take part and unfortunately did not win the medals.
With the Olympics nearly behind us, we are now looking forward to a busy period for the remainder of the season.
