The Mayfield Group, along with a community of holiday park visitors in the UK, felt relieved to see the Government guidance announcing campsites, holiday homes and caravan parks were able to reopen from 4th July 2020.
With guidance to follow and rules to abide by, both park operators and visitors alike must be aware of how to safely return to holiday parks after Covid-19. It is important to research this. Be sure to check the latest Government guidance before visiting a holiday park.
It’s time to let the adventures begin (again). We have put together a short guide of 5 Tips for Returning to Holiday Parks After Covid-19 so you can safely enjoy your trips to holiday parks in 2020.
1 – Do Your Research
Before making plans, it is important to check your holiday park is open, and you are able to visit your home. You should be able to find this out online or by contacting the holiday park.
Many parks across the country are taking part in Visit England’s Good to Go campaign, enabling them to have a certificate proving they are adhering to the latest Government guidance, have carried out a risk assessment and are implementing new processes to ensure all site visitors are safe. You could ask your park if they are certified over the phone, or check their website.
2 – Find out your park’s rules
Upon visiting your holiday park, it is essential to support and follow their guidance, rules and procedures to ensure you and other park visitors are safe. This could mean following social distancing guidelines, checking if facilities are open or closed or wearing PPE.
Supporting your park will ensure they can provide a good service and experience to both you and other park users.
An example of new park rules is social distancing. The Mayfield Group have been working closely with holiday parks to create new bespoke barriers and social distancing measures. Find out more in our blog.
3 – Support Local Businesses
Visiting your holiday park is a great opportunity to support small, local businesses who may have been impacted by Covid-19 closure. You could do this by buying from local shops and using local services where possible. This has been a turbulent time for local businesses and therefore supporting them through this is a great way you can support your community.
Why not try buying souvenirs from local shops, or a takeaway from a small restaurant? You could ask your holiday park for some local recommendations.
4 – Use Washbomb to Clean Your uPVC Deck Accessories
After leaving your decking for a long period of time, you may find it needs a light clean or wash to ensure it is in top condition for you to enjoy. Washbombs are a simple, environmentally friendly way to clean your uPVC decking. They are non-foaming, anti-microbial and are one of the simplest ways to clean decking, caravans and static homes.
Washbombs also contain Quaternary ammonium compound which, alongside other ingredients, prevents the spread of bacteria and viruses including Coronavirus. Washbombs are available in our Decking Aftercare Online Shop.
5 – Make the Most of Your uPVC Decking
Decking is the perfect place to enjoy outdoor space with friends and family. It provides a space to enjoy the sun, get fresh air and enjoy each other’s company outside the home.
