A sunny and busy easter
We were very pleased that all our Easter arrivals were able to enjoy the sun last weekend; this included our spring lambs which were all born towards the end of last week with a total of 42. The new born lambs have now been released into the field overlooked by our Holiday Homes for hire and are beginning to enjoy running around together.
We have been very pleased with the positive feedback we are receiving from guests staying on the new gravel pitches at Highlands End. The grass seed is growing rapidly in the warmer weather and the pitches are starting to look smart for the peak season.
Martin’s Bar & Restaurant was very busy over the Easter weekend and we were fully booked on Easter Sunday. The kitchen is in its second stage of refurbishments and the catering team are looking forward to the new equipment.
I am very pleased to report that the Jurassic Coast Trust invited teachers from the local primary schools to come for a training session here at Highlands. The Trust wished to provide the teachers with more information about the geology of the Jurassic Coastline and for them to incorporate the Jurassic coast into their lessons. At West Dorset Leisure Holidays our visitors have risen over £40,000 for the Trust and were very pleased to see the money being put into the community.
This week the team have had the opportunity to update their First Aid qualifications including the defibrillators which we now have on Highlands End and Golden Cap. The defibrillators are essential life-saving equipment in these holiday areas. Our team members are always very interested in the courses and recognised the importance of being prepared for a difficult situation.
Bridport and West Bay have been very busy over Easter and it makes a very positive feel to the town with people strolling around Bridport Market and West Bay.
