Lancashire caravan park wins top award

A Lancashire caravan park is celebrating after winning a top award, reports

Claylands Caravan Park, near Garstang, has been given the North West in Bloom's gold award. The honour was given to recognise the campsite's high standard of flower displays and landscapes.

Speaking about the honour, site owner, Andrew Brewer, told "Management and staff were thrilled to hear of our success and, with quality standards at caravan and holiday home parks increasing steadily, we are delighted our hard work has been recognised."

He continued: "In spite of the challenging economic climate, we had another successful year at Claylands Park. These awards demonstrate that the park is always improving standards for visitors to the area."

This year's gold award is an improvement on last year, when the park was given the silver honour. The park was runner-up in the Lancashire Caravan Park contest last year, whilst it also received praise for its cleanliness and "wow factor" in an AA Caravan assessment earlier this year. 

The site has been run by Fred and Margaret Robinson for over 50 years. Other awards to be given out in the North West in Bloom contest included Best Caravan Park, Best Hospital Grounds, Best Small Accommodation and Best Residential Home.
