The Big Local HOLIDAY HOME
A project to provide a local holiday retreat for people in North Cleethorpes
As part of our vision for North Cleethorpes to “Better Develop Local Facilities and Amenity Land for Culture, Leisure and Recreation” Big Local North Cleethorpes agreed to invest in two standalone projects – one being a Holiday Home for local residents to benefit from (the other being a shed – more about this soon).
The idea behind the holiday home project is to be able to offer residents in the North Cleethorpes area, the opportunity to experience a seaside holiday on their doorstep for those who may never have had a holiday or may not be able to afford one.
In the meantime we plan to promote and let the holiday home via the Thorpe Park lettings service to ensure we can generate sufficient income from commercial lettings to cover the costs and site fees to help subsidise local residents’ future holidays.
This approach also links to the Big Local aspiration to create a self-sufficient, vibrant community hub and meeting place at 82 Grimsby Road for local residents; expanded to provide a wide range of activities, creative endeavor and support services, because any operating surpluses generated by the holiday home will be invested back into the Hub.
Unfortunately, due to the current COVID19 lockdown situation, Thorpe Park is closed. Thorpe Park has reopened, so it is now possible to arrange holidays in the caravan.
Supported by Big Local
BLNC has provided the capital funding to purchase the holiday home and provide the equipment necessary to make it available for bookings. BLNC will receive income from rentals as well as pay ongoing bills.
The Caravan was purchased in March 2020 and after that Thorpe Park had to close due to lockdown. From August 2020, the caravan is once again available for bookings via Thorpe Park.
The Holiday Home will be booked via Thorpe Park as part of their normal lettings arrangements. However, if residents from the Big Local area are interested in booking then we may be able to make arrangements for a discounted/subsidised break according to your situation.
To do this you will need to talk to us about availability, costs, payment and so on and we will make the booking with you and work out potential subsidy.
If you live in DN35 7xx or 8xx postcodes (the Big Local area of North Cleethorpes) then please phone Paula on 01472 240707 and explain tha you are interested in the Thorpe Park holiday home. Thank you.
