Holiday firm set to grow

Have your say

A CARAVAN operator has started work on a £400,000 development in East Lothian in response to holidaymakers’ demands for ‘staycations’.

Verdant Leisure is adding 53 holiday homes to its site at Thurston Manor near Dunbar in the first phase of a five-year programme under which it plans to add 260 pitches.

Operations director Bev Dixon said: “It (the ­market) is not that easy but at the same time demand for holiday homes remains strong in this area.

“It’s important that you have pitches available.”
