Although we are now closed for tourers this season, and the winter weather means that there are fewer of our Holiday Home owners around just now, there is still a lot of activity taking place at Silverdyke Park.
We have just finished planting thousands of mixed daffodil bulbs around the park grounds which we hope will make a beautiful display to welcome you all back in the spring. This involved many hours of cheerfully trudging around in Wellies and waterproofs, digging holes, for Gwen, Andy, and friend and local businessman, Tony Chater. Thank you Tony!
Hedge plants have been ordered and will be put in during the winter to thicken existing hedges and provide additional privacy and shelter.
Sixteen new Holiday Home pitches are being developed on the north side of Silverdyke Park . These pitches all have a view of the sea, with some having expansive views over the Forth. One pitch has already been sold, and four new Holiday Homes will be arriving during the next few months, to be sold on site.
Andy has his usual list of jobs to do when we can get him away from the farm! This includes putting down concrete slabs for new Holiday Homes, lagging pipes, erecting new fencing, tidying up Silverdyke Park’s grounds, and working on the Park Manager’s house which is due to be completed in the next couple of weeks. Andy will also be arranging for all services (gas, electric, water and drainage) to be put in place for the new pitches.
We are preparing for the annual Scottish Caravan Show at the SECC in Glasgow from 4-7 February 2016. This is Scotland’s largest caravan, motorhome and holiday home show, and will be a great opportunity to look at what is available, compare different models, and see some of the latest accessories. The Caravan Club will be offering free expert tuition in towing and manouvering. We will have a stand at the show with information about what Silverdyke Park offers for tourer and Holiday Home owners, and the new Holiday Homes that are available for purchase. We hope to see you there!
