Super Saturday July 4 - Campers can return to the great outdoors

23/06/2020

Buxton Club site

(23rd June, 2020) Following the latest Government announcement today (23/6/20) saying campsites in England can soon reopen, the Caravan and Motorhome Club is absolutely delighted to be able to welcome back members and guests to 114 campsites in England on 4th July and 16 in Scotland on 15th July. This was hugely welcome news from the Government as 96 percent of Club members are planning a leisure vehicle holiday this year according to a recent member survey* carried out by the Club.

On 4th July the Club is looking forward to filling Club Sites with eager members wanting to get back to doing what they love the most - exploring the great outdoors.  

Nick Lomas, director general of the Caravan and Motorhome Club said, “We know our members have been missing coming to our campsites, and we’ve missed seeing them.  We are introducing our own COVID Secure Commitment, in line with Government guidelines, to help members, guests and staff keep safe and well on site. Club campsites offer plenty of space, they are the ideal places for people to relax, take life at a slower pace, with lots of open space, and stay safe while on holiday.”

Lomas continues, “Our lifestyle lends itself well to social distancing, being outside with well-spaced pitches and enhanced cleaning protocols and procedures mean that we will ensure visitors to our sites have a safe and enjoyable time. Members can follow their leisure activity in a self-contained manner, with all of their own supplies and amenities within their outfit, thereby having a low impact on the area they visit.”
