Using two-way radios to increase your communications on site

With the 2019 holiday season in full swing, the more organised amongst us have already turned to planning for spring 2020. Looking at improving efficiency across the whole park could mean taking out a flexible rental contract for two-way radios for the next season. Two-way radios are an ideal solution for any number of teams working across holiday parks. 

Using a two-way radio can also improve customer relations enormously. By enabling maintenance, security, retail and housekeeping employees to communicate with each other or with management this means they can solve issues very quickly.

Tips For Preparing Your Caravan to be Towed

As a great British pastime, every year thousands of holidaymakers pack up their caravans and head down to the coast for a mini-break, enjoying everything that some of our beautiful seaside towns have to offer. The greatest things about caravaning are the flexibility and home comforts, but how should you prepare your trailer before towing it? 

Read on for some top tips on making your trailer safe and towable for your journey.

Check your licence

Before you start planning your trip, you’ll need to make sure that you are actually able to tow a caravan. It may sound silly, but if your caravan usually sits on a caravan site you may not have had to tow it before. In summary:

Caravan Park Facilities Hit New Heights

Caravan park toilet and shower facilities

Toilet and shower facilities on caravan parks have come a long way since the 60s and 70s. None more so than those at one of Lincolnshire’s most popular parks.

Far from the draughty concrete blocks of the past, the architecturally designed shower complex at Lakeside Park, North Somercotes is more akin to a luxury spa resort or an ocean-going cruise liner.

With ambient lighting, individual glass-fronted shower cubicles, back-lit mirrors, state-of-the-art fittings and climate control, the new complex must be the most advanced facility of its kind in the UK and perhaps Europe. 

There is also a wet room for visitors with disabilities as well as a specially designed toddler bath.

Millennials could turn the tide for seaside resorts

The National Coastal Tourism Academy (NCTA) has worked with market research consultancy BVA BDRC to identify the specific intentions and motivations of British holidaymakers to the coast to help address key challenges facing seaside resorts; the findings are published in a comprehensive Holiday Trends 2019 report.

It finds that Millennials, the important 22 to 37-year old age group, are the least likely age cohort to visit the coast, seeing it as ‘old-fashioned' but whilst being reluctant to take a seaside break, this age group is the most likely to holiday in the UK, highlighting an urgent need for coastal resorts to target this sector to reverse their perceptions.
