NFD Holiday Park shines in the summer

Over the past year, the NFD – New Findhorn Directions – Holiday Park team have planned and delivered three major projects that encompass making ourselves more accessible as well as contributing to The Park community's collective ecological aspirations.10) Toilet Block Savings-RBridge

Water success …

In April we unveiled our rainwater collection system installed in the Holiday Park's toilet and shower block. Rainwater is collected from the 150 square metre roof and channeled into a previously redundant water pressure tank. It is then gravity fed back to the block's 18 toilet cisterns. During June and July this year we cut our mains water supply by 160,000 litres (over 50% compared to the previous year) as well as saving £400 on our water bill. Now that's a sustainable saving.


Mobility Caravan …


In May we introduced our new 35'X12' mobility caravan to the holiday caravan fleet. This spacious two-bedroom caravan is designed to make a stay both comfortable and accessible forwheelchair users, the blind, deaf, elderly and infirm. There is heating in every room, kitchen, a fully fitted en suite bathroom, flat-screen digital TV with Freeview, DVD and microwave. It is double glazed and well insulated, which ensures a cosy winter holiday as well as a traditional summer break.
 Externally, we have added a ramp, wide entrance doors and designated parking, allowing for unhindered access.


Eco Cabin …


And finally in July we proudly introduced our new Eco Cabin called ‘Aspen’ after the tree, symbolising transformation and vision, which is available for hire as an alternative to camping on rainy days. Designed and built by our own James Chitty in partnership with the Holiday Park’s Gus and Bob. It's ecological, from the locally supplied wood to the sedum roof, and with a mini windmill, it charges a storage battery that powers LED lights and a mobile phone/laptop socket.

Cath, our Holiday Park Manager and Rupert, our Park Services Manager, are responsible for developing and inspiring these projects and delivering them with dedication and innovation, with the help of Gus, Bob and Mandy.

NFD is the trading arm of the Findhorn Foundation.
