AN AYR holiday park has set up a new dedicated cleaning team to prevent the spread of coronavirus as it sets to return.

Craig Tara aims to welcome back holidaymakers in July, in line with Scottish Government guidance.

Holiday park giant Haven have been working behind the scenes to ensure parks will be ready.

The company have launched a Clean and Safe charter, a six-point guide to help guests, owners and staff feel safe and secure.

As part of it, a new team will focus on cleaning all public areas in the park.

Face coverings will also be provided to members of the team and guests, when visiting the parks.

Other measures have been taken to ensure the park is safe.

Plastic screens will meet guests on arrival, with a queuing system in place, and in and out routes will be clearly signposted.

The number of holiday makers allowed to be in parks, will also be reduced to help stay in line with social distancing measures.

Hand sanitising points will also be introduced around the parks to enable guests to maintain hand hygiene.

Haven have introduced a new 9-point enhanced caravan cleaning process which means that every single caravan will be cleaned to the same exceptionally high standard.

Teams will spend 20 per cent more time in each accommodation unit.

Each caravan will also be thoroughly inspected, with a special seal then attached to the entrance of the accommodation.

Guests have been promised a refund on their holiday if the caravan is not cleaned to the highest standard, set by their new Haven Caravan Cleanliness Guarantee (HCCG).

A take away food service will be offered at Craig Tara , with home delivery options also on offer.

An on-site supermarket will also follow strict hygiene measures, with baskets and high touch areas cleaned on a frequent basis.

Gerard Tempest, Director of Guest and Proposition at Haven said: “In light of the Coronavirus challenges we are all facing, our new Clean and Safe Charter has been designed to ensure we are protecting our guests in these uncertain times, providing reassurance that all public areas and private caravans will be scrupulously clean while adopting social distancing guidelines in all public areas.”
