Holiday firm Blue Sky Leisure to invest in north Norfolk holiday park
Tourism firm Blue Sky Leisure is investing �250,000 in a revamp in its north Norfolk holiday park after a bumper summer.
The company, based in Bradwell, has earmarked the cash for the development and renovation of its reception and guest services area at Kelling Heath Holiday Park near Weybourne, as well as an overhaul of its Park Village Store.
The work is due for completion in January, and as well as offering larger guest services and reception areas will include sustainable features including a sedum roof, LED lighting and increased insulation.
Kelling Heath is one of two holiday parks run under the Blue Sky Leisure brand, the trading name of Timewell Properties, along with Woodhill Park, near Cromer.
The company, run by the Timewell family, who have provided holidays in Norfolk for more than 35 years, now offers more than 400 holiday homes and 300 pitches for touring caravans and tents.
It also includes restaurant brand Zaks.
The investment comes after an increase in visitors this summer at both holiday parks and the increasing popularity of UK holidays.

Mark Durrant, general manager of Kelling Heath, said: 'Both Kelling Heath and Woodhill Park in North Norfolk have seen an increase in demand for their quality accommodation and the recent resurgence in camping and touring has certainly continued in spite of the inclement weather we experienced over the summer holidays.'
Michael Timewell, director of Blue Sky Leisure, added: 'The development of the reception and guests services area will enable us to provide a dedicated service to those visiting the park and who want to know more about the range of environmental activities they can enjoy whilst visiting, or details about the surrounding area.'
Kelling Heath has also notched up a string of industry awards, including a gold rating from the Green Tourism Business Scheme and a second David Bellamy Conservation Award of Special Distinction.
