Advice regarding refunds:
We are very much relying on our customers to be understanding and supportive at this extremely worrying time for the touring parks industry. Like the majority of our counterparts, we are emerging from the winter period, during which time we have invested heavily in new facilities, services and infrastructure, and therefore, in normal circumstances, rely on the first part of the season as a way to recoup these costs. We are currently struggling to find the best solutions to deal with the deluge of cancellations and requests for refunds. We fully anticipate that our business, our staff and our industry as a whole is set to be hit incredibly hard and as such we are working out ways how we can continue to trade and stay sustainable over the coming months and beyond. As such, we are hoping that folks will work with us to make sure we and other parks in our position are able to survive this situation. In real terms, this means we are relying on customers to either offer to cancel without requesting a refund OR accept our offer to transfer dates open for 12 months. We really do appreciate your support.
In view of this, we are not able to offer refunds, as a safeguard to ensure that Blue Rose Country Park can continue to trade and safeguard our staff.
Thoughts for the Future: Reducing the risk of virus transmission at Blue Rose Country Park:
Distancing Measures. Our pitches and accommodation have more than adequate space between them. Please stand further back from our reception desk, than you normally would. This will help to reduce the risk for our front line staff and yourselves, to ensure we are able to continue to offer our services. Please refrain from shaking hands with our staff or each other.
Additional Cleaning & Hygiene Measures. We have upgraded our usual cleaning product as per recommendations. We are undertaking additional daily cleaning ‘high touch point areas’ – door handles, tap heads, card machines, and so on.
Reducing cash handling. Cash is known to have passed through many hands and therefore, we are asking guests to pay by card wherever possible.
When visiting our park we would ask all our guests and owners to take the following sensible Government Advice:
Washing hands regularly. Wash hands for at least 30 seconds and use an alcohol based hand sanitiser if soap and water is not available.
Maintain good hygiene practices such as using tissues when coughing or sneezing and disposing of the tissue in a bin.
Maintain a sensible distance from others, the government suggests a distance of at least 1.5 metres.
