FOUR of the Isle of Wight’s most popular holiday parks have received a £1.7 million investment for 2020.

The UK’s largest holiday park operator, Parkdean Resorts, is to install new lodges, replace old fleet with new caravans, and upgrade arcade facilities, as part of an £80 million investment in its business nationwide.

Parkdean Resorts operates four parks on the Isle of Wight: Landguard and Lower Hyde, both in Shanklin, Nodes Point, near St Helens, and Thorness Bay, near Cowes.

As part of the investment, there will be new lodges installed at Nodes Point, more than 50 brand new caravans across the other three sites to replace old fleet, and improvements to the arcade facilities at Thorness Bay.

Parkdean Resorts employs almost 400 staff on the Island in season, and the parks are currently hiring for a number of seasonal roles across sales, food and beverage, and housekeeping.

Steve Richards, chief executive, said: “We’ve made great progress in the last year and our success is down to the passion of our teams in helping to deliver great holiday experiences for our customers.

"We want to build on momentum in 2020, so we’re on the lookout for vibrant people to join our teams at our Isle of Wight parks.”
