PRO News & Views

Welcome

Hello and welcome to the spring edition of PRO News & Views!

We hope you like our new digital version - it'll make it even easier for you to keep up with all our latest news and events. 

After surviving the wettest summer in 100 years, we're delighted to welcome in the new camping season with some exciting news…  

We've been working hard over the last few months and we can now announce our 2013 Club campaign - 'Club Perks'

We have a 'Perk' for everyone - whether holidaymakers like clean washrooms, unique Club Site locations, the enthusiasm of our Holiday Site Teams or great competitions; the list is endless.

And there's plenty of inspiration on our dedicated website, with hundreds of suggested 'Perks' to enjoy when out exploring the beautiful British countryside.

Take a look at our overarching Club Perk below - our Club Promise!

Anyway, we hope you enjoy reading about our latest news - don't forget, you can pass on this information to your DA PRO and/or Section Area PRO for their perusal as well.

Happy camping!

Steve Birch, Communications Committee Chairman

Clean Washrooms Guaranteed! 

In a recent Onepoll survey carried out on our behalf, we found that 30 per cent of people thought clean washrooms are the most important factor when choosing a campsite (30%).

So, we have made a Club Promise. We promise that all of our Club Sites are of an exceptionally high standard in terms of cleanliness - in fact, we're so confident of that, we've launched a 'Clean Washrooms Guarantee'. 

Campers who aren't happy with the cleanliness of a Club Site's washrooms can make a complaint to site staff and if it can't be resolved within a two-hour time frame, will be recompensed with a free night - watch our video for more information!

With the support of Outwell and Calor, a new Eat Local booklet has been produced - and we have also filmed a number of cookery videos to give holidaymakers some camping food inspiration!
