NEW COUNTRY CLUB OPENING IN 2017!
Published 17 JUNE 2016
New Country Club Opening 2017! The Old Mill Club building was originally built around 1850 and in the 1960’s was part converted to a licensed public house. Sadly significant structural issues resulted in its closure in 2012. We are delighted to advise that at long last we have received demolition approval. As a consequence of the above, we are also pleased to advise that subject to planning permission, a country club will be built and open for the early part of the 2017 season. As a small park (just 51 caravans), we are proud that we can offer such a facility that would grace much larger caravan parks. This represents a further significant investment in the park and will provide a much missed weekend facility for residents to enjoy. However, we will still be using our temporary marquee for our events this season, until the country club opens. We now only have 3 vacant plots, 2 of which are occupied with caravans for sale both with free site fees to 1st March 2017. If you are still looking to purchase a caravan, then now is a great time to grab a great deal and ensure you do not miss out on a plot for the summer months.

THE HONEY BEE FRIENDLY PROJECT
Published 1 JUNE 2016
Bees are a vital part of the countryside. Not only are they beautiful and fascinating creatures, they are one of the most important pollinators of crops and other plants. That’s why the recent dramatic decline in many of Britain’s bee species is such bad news. To help, the David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme (DBCAS) has teamed up with the British Bee Keepers Association (BBKA) to run the Honey Bee Friendly Park Project. We at
Caeran are working to conserve Britain’s bees by taking the Honey Bee Pledge. By doing so:
Honey bees need flowering plants to get the nectar and pollen they require from early spring to early winter. Despite the recent wintery weather, we are technically in Spring so shortly we will be planting some flowering trees and shrubs. Caravan owners are encouraged to join in, in particular with potted flowering shrubs – if you wish to plant anything in the ground then under park rules you must have our permission first.
You may have noticed that around trees have not been strimmed. This is not to save money but to encourage undisturbed areas of growth for bee nests. Likewise we will be leaving one or two areas of undisturbed grassland by the river bank and in certain spots/corners around the park. Bees are generally docile animals and bee hotels need to be placed in quiet areas away from people, so the danger of stings is minimal. During the main school holidays we will be running some bee friendly activities for children and adults.

For the 2015 season, we cut our park waste going to landfill by 75% compared with the 2014 season -
We would like to thank all residents who used our recycling service. Well done!
