Welsh holiday parks bombarded with bookings from England as lockdown eased

Wales’ largest holiday parks are inundated with the demands of people living in England.

Those who live on the other side of the border are said to bombard the country’s most popular parks with requests for residence.

Booking requests have flooded into locations in Rhyl after Prime Minister Boris Johnson’s closure of England was eased yesterday.

Laurie Clark, general manager of Golden Sands, said North Wales Live says the Prime Minister’s new rules are in conflict with Welsh regulations.

Across the border, people can now exercise more than once a day, but near their own home.

In England, people can now travel to exercise if they wish, and some companies are allowed to open.

The differences between the English approach and the approach to Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have already caused confusion.

Mr. Clark said he received up to 40 calls.

He said, “Some people just couldn’t understand and asked because they said Boris Johnson was the Prime Minister of the UK, so why would it be any different in Wales?

“Some didn’t even believe me, and I can imagine it getting a little dirty with all this confusion. The caravan owners simply want to return to the park.

“Others wanted to book holidays, and we’ve had a few who want to stay here while working at nearby factories in Ellesmere Port and so on.”

Laurie added, “We will remain completely closed, with additional gates plus additional security and camera surveillance to assist with strict government guidelines.”

He said there are currently 10 mobile homes on the site being used by key NHS employees, or people who were allowed to stay on the site during closure because they have health concerns. He usually said that there are 2000 people on the site at this time of the year.

“Me and a few employees also live on site, and this has also added some inconvenience to the local community,” said Laurie.

“People have been abused in local shops, etc., and have been told not to leave the site. It’s a difficult time for everyone. “

Arfon Jones – The North Wales police chief has raised concerns that this could lead to a new influx of visitors to Wales, calling for the fines to be increased to £ 1,000.
