Last week we read that Zoos and Safari parks were about to start to open which is great but for the previous few weeks with much talk about tourism being in dire straits, and of course sat at home thinking “why can’t I get out in the Moho?”, I put fingers to keyboard and emailed my MP:
I’m pleased to read this morning that Zoos and Safari parks are set to begin reopening from 15th June. I hope this means we’re one step closer to campsites reopening to motorhomes and caravans which are self-sufficient and, by nature, self-distancing. It’s too early to permit tents or small campervans which need communal toilet/washing facilities, but motorhomes and caravans don’t require these facilities. This would be another small but significant step towards the return to “normal” but more importantly generate critically needed income for ailing campsites and local tourism communities, of course all subject to social distancing guidelines.
What I didn’t know at the time was that 4th July is the anticipated date for the Government’s “accommodation” phase which includes campsites (and hotels). The CAMC tell me that they’re “working towards” reopening their site from 4th July and are taking bookings, which is true but my experience so far is that independent/farm sites aren’t following suit as exampled by the recent Club Rallies and AGM update. Perhaps if we all gave our MP’s a nudge it just might help keep the Government’s focus on sticking to 4th July.
Regards, and stay safe.
