Will procedures impact holidays?
In a word, no. Following guidance – from the Government as well as campsites – is incredibly important as due diligence will help things return to normal as quickly as possible. Campsite visitors embraced the extra measures and a member of site staff underlined this by saying that ‘reopening would not have been possible without help and understanding from members, each of whom followed the guidance given and did so correctly and without question.’
The spacious centre washroom in the Bailey Phoenix 760 means we are self-contained (which helps keep wash-block queues at a minimum for others), but visits to communal areas such as wash-blocks and water points should always be followed by thorough hand-washing. Beyond social distancing and a hygienic approach to objects that may have been touched, our New Forest ‘two campsite tour’ was one of the most relaxed breaks we’ve had and was filled with mountain biking and dog walking, something which Max (our American Bulldog) thoroughly enjoyed.
However, it’s not just us caravanners and motorhomers who are pleased to be visiting the site network again. A member of the New Forest team greeted everyone at the gate, and with a beaming smile, said ‘It’s great to have you all back. Having an empty site just didn’t feel right’.
