outdoor leisure business, Robsons of Wolsingham, has announced major expansion plans for the 2000 season.

These include the addition of a new range of caravans to the company's portfolio and an expansion of its mail order division.

The Herald caravan, manufactured by The Explorer Group in Consett, has been brought in to complement Robsons' existing Compass range.

To cope with the increasing demand for new and used caravans, as well as for motor homes and other camping products, Robsons has also recruited four new members of staff, all from within the Wolsingham area.

Founded in 1934, this family business has become an important part of the local economy in Wolsingham.
