It’s nearly Christmas!
The team will finish work for their Christmas break next Wednesday so this is our last Friday working before Christmas which tied in with Christmas Jumper Day. Andrew who recently joined accounts came in with this amazing jumper and showed the rest of us up! – well done Andrew.
Out on the parks we are as busy as we always are in the short closed period. With the target of getting Highlands open again for 2nd February and most winter works complete, the park has been getting most of the attention over the last 2 weeks. This will change in the New Year as we get stuck into planned works at the other four parks but for now Highlands End is coming together nicely. This week we welcomed the last two lodges in Shepherds View to complete the development we started in 2012 and brings the Lodges to a total of 10 with a range of 1, 2 and 3 bedroom units available all year round for hire. It was great to watch them get craned on and the development completed and a real achievement for the team and the family.
As Martin’s Bar & Restaurant continues to develop its offering, we were very excited and pleased to attend a meeting earlier in the week and were told Gin Masterclasses are starting on Saturday February 3rd and for the first year ever we will be open for lunch through January, starting on the 3rd. From February 2nd we will open 9am until 11pm daily serving breakfast, lunch and dinner as well Costa Coffee and Cakes (Yummy).
At Highlands End we have started work on the Touring Pitches and for the fourth year in a row we are investing, not only in both Toilet Blocks, but also in the pitches themselves and the area around them. We will have 9 new Gravel pitches in 2018 as well as 19 Grass Pitches upgraded for Touring Caravans and Motorhomes from Camping.
We are also extending just over half of the hard base concrete pitches so they reach the road. We will also welcome 6 new Premier Camping Pods to the park in late March, check our the little flyer below – we are very excited!
We have also taken delivery of our new sauna at the Leisure Club at Highlands End. Work will begin on the 2nd January transforming the gym in the leisure club into something totally new and totally different for Martin’s Bar!
