New to this - but everyone seems to be doing it so here goes!
I plan on doing updates from time to time re life in the holiday parks industry.
Writing this in November 2007 - its been an interesting year!!
Has it ever rained so much! What about global warming - I think we'd all like to have a bit of it next summer please!!
I do think that we do all have to take our environmental impact seriously though. The David Bellamy awards have given the industry a great boost, and eveyone is talking about green isues.
I think we do have an image problem though - The likes of Jeremy Clarkson & Top Gear have a lot to answer for- I wonder if they really believe what they are saying or do they just think it makes good telly??
At least we have the likes of Margaret Beckett doing us a bit of good - but its a shame we couldn't get someone a bit trendier to be our Ambassador!! I think the Caravan Club do a good job trying to raise our profile in a positive way - as do the BH&HPA.
Anyway I'll leave it there for now!!!
I will leave a few links on here in case anyone wants to take a look at the parks I'm involved with -
