Touring & camping etiquette
In a bid to further improve their guests' holiday experience, award winning Kelling Heath Holiday Park have drafted in well known Norfolk cartoonist, Tony Hall, to produce a series of fun, tongue in cheek cartoons for a ‘camping etiquette' campaign.
- Respect quiet Hours
- Respect your neighbours
- Camp fires prohibited
- Keep dogs under control
- Ball games on the sports field only
The cartoons tackle a number of issues such as ‘respecting quiet hours', ‘respecting your camping and caravanning neighbours', ‘dogs to be kept on leads and never left unattended', together with ‘not lighting camp fires on park'.
"In recent years there has been a significant rise in people camping and caravanning for the first time and some of those were not aware of the camping etiquette which every campsite and caravan park across the UK has," says Mark Durrant, Park Manager at Kelling Heath.
Kelling Heath, one of the top ten UK holiday parks, celebrated its 30thanniversary under the ownership of the Timewell family in 2014 and has earned a reputation as one of the UK's leading holiday parks, combining quality and value for money with a genuine commitment to the environment and sustainable tourism.
Michael Timewell, Director of Kelling Heath Holiday Park says: "The majority of people who go on camping and caravanning holidays take pleasure in participating in the camping etiquette rules. We think this cartoon campaign will help give new campers the opportunity to understand these rules in a fun and respectful way."
Cartoonist Tony Hall comments: ""It was an interesting and enjoyable project and my main concern was to get the advice points over in a clear yet humorous way. I think humour can often get the message across better than having authoritarian signs and people respond better. The message is still a serious one, though."
Figures from the BH&HPA (British Holiday & Park Home Association) say that at least 50% of the British population have had a holiday in a caravan or holiday home at some point in their lives often as children and then taking their own children and grandchildren.
