The per­fect place for re­lax­ation

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - OPINION - by Mike Ben­nett

MP DAMIAN Green vis­ited Broad­hem­bury Car­a­van and Camp­ing Park in Kingsnorth on Fri­day on a tour to sup­port small busi­ness in the area.

Broad­hem­bury is one of Bri­tain’s top 100 parks and a mem­ber of the Best of Bri­tish sites that have again been awarded five stars from Vis­itbri­tain for ex­cel­lent fa­cil­i­ties and cus­tomer care.

Camp­ing now comes with all mod cons, with con­stant hot show­ers with un­der­floor cen­tral heat­ing. Campers’ kitchens have ovens and fridges and chil­dren’s play ar­eas cater for all ages.

Mr Green was told that thou­sands of Bri­tish fam­i­lies now choose to camp with many de­cid­ing they don’t need to travel miles for a re­lax­ing break.

On Fri­day he was able to meet fam­i­lies from the Med­way Towns, Can­ter­bury and Char­ing who think of the en­vi­ron­ment when they plan breaks and re­search just what is avail­able al­most on their doorstep.

Site boss Jenny Tay­lor has been a mem­ber of Ash­ford and Ten­ter­den Tourism As­so­ci­a­tion (ATTA) since its in­cep­tion a decade ago and is keen to be in­volved with the new Green Tourism ini­tia­tive un­veiled at the group’s an­nual meet­ing last week.

The aim is to set up a scheme to help mem­bers re­duce their busi­ness’ en­vi­ron­men­tal im­pact
