Weymouth holiday park extends local commitment
Haven Littlesea holiday park in Weymouth has extended its commitment to supporting the local area with a new sponsorship deal.
According to dorsetecho.co.uk, the caravan site has agreed to pay Weymouth and Portland Borough Council £20,000 in exchange for promotional space in leaflets, brochures or event literature; the aim being to persuade more people to go camping in Dorset.
Andy Such, manager at Haven Littlesea, told the publication that the 20,000 or more visitors who come to holiday park each year all contribute to the local economy; while many of the facility's 300-strong staff are local residents.
Their contribution was labelled as "crucial" by a representative from the council. Mr Such remarked: "Our commitment to being pro-active in trialling new and innovative schemes is well supported by the council and we place a high value on this partnership and how it clearly benefits both parties and the local community."
The campsite's attempts to expand its reach have come at an opportune time, as the country has increasingly turned towards camping holidays as a cheap method of getting away during a tough financial climate, reported thisisstaffordshire.co.uk.
Haven Littlesea, with its views across the famous Chesil Beach and access to Dorset coastal walks, may be well-placed to take advantage of this trend.
