Caravan parks across England have been able to reopen many of the on-site entertainment and activity options they offer to guests since coronavirus restrictions were relaxed on July 19th.

One operator in particular has been pleased to see how its guests have responded and continue to think about the welfare of others with regard to Covid-19.

Park Holidays thanked visitors for a “responsible and well-judged” approach to precautions since so-called Freedom Day.

Tony Clish, director of Park Holidays, said: “Everyone loves letting their hair down on holiday, and it’s wonderful to see our clubs, bars and entertainment venues all buzzing again.

“But what’s especially noticeable is the restrained and thoughtful behaviour of guests which is helping to maintain a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere for everyone.

“There’s definitely a sense that we’re not out of the woods yet, but that it’s possible to enjoy ourselves and have a good time whilst still remaining cautious.”

Usually mainstays of caravan holidays in the UK, singing, dancing and swimming have all been restricted during the pandemic, but can be enjoyed once more.

Face coverings are no longer mandatory indoors in England, but some guests may still wish to wear them and making use of the hand sanitising stations regularly is a sensible precaution.

An enhanced cleaning routine is still in place at Park Holidays’ sites and social distancing made possible with gaps between accommodation areas.

Park Holidays operates in more than 40 locations across England and Scotland, and has experienced higher demand this summer than any in its 30-year history.

There are still some pitches available, but capacity is starting to become limited as sites get booked up well into the autumn.

Mr Clish summarised: “Meanwhile, we are expressing our gratitude to everyone for remaining sensitive to the situation we are all having to live with, and making our parks a relaxing place to be.”
