CORONAVIRUS, PARKS CLOSED
UP DATE ON CORONAVIRUS and HOLIDAY PARK SITUATION.
This is a very difficult message to write to you all as Caravan Owners. These are unprecedented times. We all have a responsibility to consider not just ourselves but to the people of our country, the local community and on this park.
We are having to make decisions and take actions which were unimaginable a few weeks ago. The government’s response and advice is something we follow very closely in a bid to contain the spread of the virus and safeguard both our Staff and you as Caravan Owners.
As most of you will know we are members of the BH&HPA and we take their advice in times of need, today they have advised all Caravan and Touring Parks nationwide to close immediately, in a bid to stop the spread. They are in ongoing consultations with all devolved governments and Downing street and there is talk of a bill possibly passing into law this coming week that would force us to close owing to non-essential travel and self-isolation restrictions.
The current medical officers thinking is that the wave of infection may well take place will be in the coming two weeks. With that in mind, I am sorry to announce that we as a family have taken the very difficult decision to close the park for the foreseeable future.
Both Tan-Y-Don and Silver Birch will be closed and need to be vacated by 5.00pm on Tuesday 24th March 2020.
We ask all caravan owners who are not on the park not to come here, and if you are on the park please go home. We are following the Government’s guidance so closing to protect you and wider society.
The time for you to leave in a safe and orderly way is limited. If there is any reason why you cannot leave, you need to discuss that with us now.
There will no doubt be lots of questions and we hope to address them in the coming days. The office/reception will remain closed but we will be around and contactable by telephone and will do our upmost to allay any worries. Please call us if necessary. We would love to be able to give a time frame but, in all honesty, I wouldn’t like to falsely raise expectations.
As you can appreciate this is a rapidly changing situation and We will keep everyone up to date as and when we can allow you back on site.
Please follow your normal routines regarding turning the water off. We would recommend that you empty your freezer and take all perishable foods home with you. If you need and help with this please let us know.
The Bancroft Family and the staff are devastated we have had to take this action but we are in a time of national crisis and must follow Governmental and Industry advice to keep us all safe.
We would like to wish everyone the best of health at this time and thank you for your understanding and patience.
Mark, Guy, Dianne and Karen.
