The committee of the Club wish to thank our caravan staff, Sammy, Ron and Phil for seeing us through the past 16 months when we have been able to open. It hasn't been easy to accommodate everyone on the dates they required especially weekends during the summer months. Sammy has changed his days and now works Friday Saturday Sunday and Monday, whilst Ron and Phil cover the other 3 days. We appreciate your efforts and commitment

We have had some incidents with the swing barrier controlling the entrance to the park, so please remember not to enter or leave the park until our staff open this barrier. Car drivers are able to come and go using the fob which opens the up and over barrier.

Our current prices for daily rates have never been increased for 3 years. In that time utility prices such as water and electric have steadily increased, and ours are due to go a lot higher once current contracts finish. Both our water and electric contracts finish shortly, and we are expecting increases to be substantial. Other running costs such as rates and wages have also steadily increased. However we do not intend to increase our summer prices until next Easter, but we will  have an  increase in our winter rate. Below is a breakdown of our current summer prices and our winter prices up to Easter 2022. 

The current 2021 summer rate, up to and including Sunday 7th November, is £29 Monday to Thursday and £31 Friday Saturday and Sunday.

From Monday the 8th November 2021 until  Sunday the 19th December 2021 the rate will be £18 Monday to Thursday and £22 for Friday Saturday and Sunday. The same rates will apply from the 2nd January 2022  until the 10th April 2022. All these prices are daily rates and include electric hook-up and entry to the Social Club. We do not charge for dogs nor for the number of people in the caravan or motor home. The only extra will be £3 per day for an awning. We will have a deal running through the winter months only and this will be £60 if stopping for 4 days Monday to Thursday, or £60 for the 3 day weekend Friday to Sunday. If stopping for a full 7day week the charge will be £100. This will be a saving of £12 if  stopping for the 4 midweek days.

These are necessary winter price increases. It is now our intention is to give notice in advance of our summer 2022 prices. From Monday the 11th April 2022, our daily rate Monday to Thursday will be £32 and our weekend rate Friday Saturday and Sunday will be £34.

We feel it will be necessary to have these increases due to the reasons mentioned previously and hope all our visitors understand why. Our site is very close to all of Blackpool's amenities, the promenade and Pleasure Beach  both within walking distance. Our new toilet and shower block has been very well received. All we ask is for everyone to respect that facility.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported us, as coming out of this pandemic has not been easy and we are not 100% clear yet. Take care everyone, and we look forward to seeing you in the near future.

Thank You,

The Secretary, Committee and all our staff.

 Hi,

Just a short message to update everyone. This includes all our members and our guests and all our caravan and motorhome visitors.

Firstly the caravan park. We have a new employee called Phil who runs the caravan office on a Tuesday, Ron now does every Wednesday and Thursday, whilst Sammy does Friday Saturday Sunday and Monday. Each will help with queries, answer the phone and emails. The site has been very busy since we opened following the lock down, and there are not many spaces left at weekends until we get into November. Many caravan owners site their van away for the winter, but motor home owners can come in November and December to see the Illuminations as they are shining til the New Year. We have a differential rate for midweek and weekends and also one for the summer and winter, but more of the charges later.

Please ensure you do not attempt to get on the site without one of our staff opening the swing barrier. Your caravan and certainly your motor home will not fit under when closed. People have tried and have ignored the signs and caused damage to their vehicle and to the barrier. The caravan office phone number is 01253 341020 and our email address is hrcp22@gmail.com

Now the Club. We are gradually getting back to evening entertainment but we are still mindful and Ben of the dangers of this wretched virus. Bar service is back, and our Steward Pete, Asst Steward Anton and Carla and Kate and Ben our glass collector will make you feel welcome as will our resident doorman Gordon on Fridays Saturdays and Mondays. Committee members will cover the door on other nights. Masks are optional whilst walking about but there will still be sanitiser bottles available. It's common sense now as we are all used to restrictions but lets do it gradually. 

Monday is our quiz night with cash prizes, Wednesday is line dancing with LC our tutor, Thursday is our Ballroom and Sequence Dancing, Friday alternates between a record hop on the first Friday and a Rock and Roll Night with a live band on the last Friday and artistes on the other Fridays, Saturday is our Cabaret Night with Bingo and Play the Joker for a possible £1000, and Sunday is our regular Country and Western Night.

All current members will have a free year for subscriptions this year, but please bring your membership card in to be signed.

We look forward to seeing everyone and we are very grateful for your support. The Chancellor has helped with various loans and grants whilst we have been closed, but we are now at the point of starting to have to repay them. We will get there and I want to take this opportunity to thank all the bar staff for keeping us going during the initial relaxations with table service, masks and shields being prevalent. All our committee as well for doing duties under the same trying circumstances. Many businesses will not have survived the past 16 months, we have so stay safe and sane and see you soon.

I shall do a new post regarding prices on the caravan park.

The Secretary
