Caravan park looks forward to bright future
THE HUSBAND and wife team behind a North-East holiday park are looking forward to a brighter future following a series of washout summers.
Barclays Business, the small business arm of the global financial services provider, has been helping County Durham-based Strawberry Hill Farm Camping and Caravan Park get its finances in order following a succession of summers when heavy rain hit demand.
Strawberry Hill Farm, a four star ETC park based at Running Waters, Old Cassop, near Durham City, was established in 2002 offering facilities for touring caravans, tents and hire of caravan holiday homes.
Howard Dunkerley, who runs the site with his wife Elizabeth, said: “Following the successive poor summers and the down turn in the economy, we asked Barclays to help us review our business performance and with their help, we’ve managed to restructure our finances as well as upgrade the facilities onsite.
"We’re confident that the refurbished facilities will attract an increase in trade this year and a good summer will be the icing on the cake.”
Tina Hope, business manager at Barclays said: “It’s been very rewarding working with Howard and Elizabeth seeing them progress their new strategy plans in the challenging current environment whilst keeping true to their ethos.
"For any business to operate successfully in the current economic climate is a fantastic achievement and it’s great that we can support our longstanding customers through the good and the tough times.”
