£90k revamp for Ribble Valley holiday park — and jobs available – Lancashire Telegraph


ALMOST £100,000 is to be spent on upgrading accommodation at an East Lancashire holiday park.

Parkdean Resorts, The UK’s largest holiday park operator, has given a boost for tourism in Lancashire with the announcement of the investment for Todber Valley Holiday Park which is near Gisburn in the Ribble Valley.

The spend of £90,000 to install and upgrade accommodation is part of a £70 million investment in its business nationwide, and the award-winning company is now hiring for seasonal and full-time roles in the region.

Todber welcomed more than 2,500 guests in 2020, and as part of the investment, the park will benefit from a new, spacious, extra-wide caravan, in addition to the introduction of five upgraded caravans to replace existing fleet across the park.

Parkdean employs around 20 staff in season at Todber Valley, and the Park is currently hiring for a number of seasonal roles across sales, food and beverage, and housekeeping.

Parkdean Resorts is the UK’s largest operator of caravan, lodge, cabin, glamping and camping holiday resorts, and was named Best UK Family Holiday Company, and Best UK Holiday Parks and Lodges Company at the British Travel Awards 2020, the UK’s biggest opinion poll for travel and tourism in the country.

Steve Richards, Chief Executive of Parkdean Resorts, said: “Despite the most challenging of years, we’re continuing to invest in our parks, creating an even better experience for holidaymakers and holiday home owners in 2021. With industry-leading COVID-safe standards, we’re looking forward to welcoming people back safely, to enjoy everything our parks, and the surrounding areas, have to offer. We know how reliant the local economy is on tourism, and we’re confident that we can help the region recover by welcoming holidaymakers to enjoy a well-deserved staycation in Lancashire.”
