We are really proud that so many of our Haven parks have won awards over the years and continue to do so. It’s a real testament to the team to have their hard work and achievement recognised in this way. It also offers reassurance to families looking to buy a holiday home on one of our parks. Here’s just an outline of some of the awards our parks have won.
Green Tourism recognises companies like Haven who operate sustainability and our Park at Perran Sands and Rockley park both won gold this year.
David Bellamy conservation awards look at lots of different aspects including the haven we provide for wildlife, how we recycle on park, how efficient we are at using energy (lots of our parks have solar panels and other energy saving tools!) and how we support our local communities. All of our parks have David Bellamy awards and most of them have Gold Standard.
Investor in People helps us recognise team achievement, makes our team feel valued which all has a positive impact on the guest and owner experience. Perran Sands, Riviere Sands, both in Cornwall and also Quay West are worthy winners this year.
Quality in Tourism is the assessment service for Visit England. The checkers look at every aspect of the guest experience from the service, cleanliness, maintenance, comfort, attention to detail and choice.
The British Travel Awards are one of the few awards that are voted by you the public, which is the very best feedback we can receive. This year we were delighted to be entered into four categories:
• Best Family Holiday Company
• Best UK Holiday Parks Operator
• Best Camping & Mobile Holiday Company
• Best Holiday Company for Customer Service
We were then invited to a glittering awards ceremony at The Evolution in Battersea Park in London on 27 November, it was a Venetian theme and we all had to wear masks, such a lot of fun!
I’m really delighted to be able to tell you that we won “Best Family Holiday Company”! If you were one of the many people that voted for us then thank you.
