Southwold gets ready to welcome back campers

Posted by on 9 July 2020 | Comments

Southwold is set to get a welcome boost as East Suffolk Council prepares to re-open its popular caravan and camping site.

Following further easing of lockdown restrictions, East Suffolk Council is busy preparing for the safe re-opening of Southwold Caravan and Camping Site tomorrow, Friday 10 July.

As part of this, a number of measures have been put in place to ensure everyone can have an enjoyable, but safe stay. This includes installing new information and guidelines signage and hand sanitiser stations as well as adding additional toilet and shower facilities and adapting existing ones to enable social distancing. 

Other measures include limiting the number of visitors allowed at any one time and hiring additional staff to help ensure the site is managed efficiently and regular cleaning is carried out.

Cllr Letitia Smith, East Suffolk’s cabinet member for Communities, Leisure and Tourism said: “We know that many people have missed it, so it is great that we are now able to welcome campers back to Southwold. I want to reassure people that we have taken every step to ensure we can re-open as safely as possible, including installing new facilities and adapting existing ones in line with Government guidelines.

“We hope that visitors will enjoy Southwold but also act responsibly so that both residents and other visitors are safe and have a positive experience.”
