Over the last few weeks we have seen lockdown restrictions easing, but nothing has been mentioned regarding campsites. We have been trawling the internet to try and find some news and at last we have some.

The Camping and Caravanning Club have announced that they are aiming to reopen sites from July 4th but with a number of social distancing measures in place.

In a statement on their website they are planning to open as many Club Sites as they can and where possible with toilet block facilities. Although this will depend on if they get the go-ahead from the government.

The measures they are looking to put in place in order to get the campsites open again are;

  • Contactless check in.
  • Pitches with 6 metre spacing and reduced numbers of people on Club Sites with facility blocks.
  • Signs and floor markings as a reminder to keep two metres apart.
  • Two deep cleans and four supplementary cleans per day in facility blocks where they are open.
  • Encouraging the use of your own facilities when on site.
  • Only allowing individual bookings to prevent large groups assembling.
  • No day visitors to pitches.
  • Reception, laundries, shops and play areas will remain close.
  • Service points will be open.

Whilst the 4th July is the date advised for England, if you are travelling to Scotland or Northern Ireland you may have to wait a little longer as these won’t be opening until July 15th.
