Ahead of another mouth-watering month of shows and events, we’ve got a bumper harvest of parks and homes for you inside your fantastic October issue!
As we went to print, the industry was getting ready for the hotly-anticipated Lawns Caravan Extravaganza, and the neighbouring Cottingham Golf Club event, which both take place near Hull.
In a busy month of events, The Lawns organisers – the Hull and East Riding of Yorkshire Caravan Manufacturers’ Association (Hercma) – will also host another top event from the Beaulieu estate in the New Forest, in Hampshire.
For those further south, there’s also the Westpoint Show, which sees thousands of outdoor enthusiasts flock to Exeter to run the rule over the latest lodges, caravans and specialist products and services.
We’ve got previews and essential information on the shows so you won’t miss a thing thanks to your favourite monthly magazine. Turn to page 82 and let the fun begin!
The industry likes to show its best side during a big season of events so we’ve got more parks and homes than ever this month!
We visit top residential sites in Surrey, Kent, Dorset, Cumbria and North Lanarkshire, as well as idyllic holiday options in Worcestershire and Northumberland. Turn to page 10 to start exploring!
On top of all this, we’re bringing you an extra selection of great new homes from big name manufacturers including Wessex, Willerby, Prestige & Homeseeker, Omar, Tingdene, Aspire, Pathfinder, Red Rose and Oakgrove. You won’t find a more comprehensive range in any other trusted publication (see page 44).
We’ve also got some exciting lifestyle features like our in-depth article on how to save money on your fuel bills. With winter soon on its way, now’s the time to start thinking about these important things (see page 60).
If you’re a nature lover (and many park homers are), look out for our wildlife expert’s feature on the decline of our native hedgehog population on page 62.
Finally, we’ve got an intriguing feature on Omar Homes’ brand new refurbishment service that we’re sure will be of interest (see page 70). Enjoy the issue!
