North Devon holiday park unveils new clubhouse year after fire

Press Release: August 08, 2016

A Woolacombe Holiday Park has unveiled their refurbished clubhouse and swimming pool, a year after fire struck the site.

On 3rd August 2015, a fire began in the sauna at Europa Holiday Park, severely damaging the clubhouse, dining area, dance floor, bar and swimming pool.

Now, a year on, the Park has unveiled the new-look clubhouse and swimming pool. The clubhouse has a fresh, modern look with increased seating and a new roof, whilst the swimming pool is bigger and brighter with new changing facilities. In all, the park has bounced back bigger and better than ever.

Repair costs are estimated to have cost in excess of half a million, and the site has added additional fire safety measures across the site. Three people were injured in the blaze, but have now fully recovered: one had cuts to his leg and two others suffered from smoke inhalation.

Graham Toms, Director, at Europa Holiday Park, said: “We are happy to announce that our new-look clubhouse and swimming pool are open, fully functioning and better than ever.

“The blaze at Europa Park last year was a horrifying event for us. Our number one priority was to ensure that the three injured people were recovering well.

“The fact that this happened at the beginning of our busiest time was also a huge concern. However, we all worked together to create a temporary clubhouse area for the remainder of the season and we were lucky that a neighbouring site - Woolacombe Sands holiday site - loaned its swimming pool out for Europa guests, which we are very grateful for.

“Above all we are proud that we have risen out of the ashes: our determination and passion helped us get through the 2015 holiday season and we are looking forward to a bright future”.

The Europa Park Clubhouse offers a wide range of entertainment throughout the year and is open to residents and non-residents. The Clubhouse is also available to hire for private parties and functions. To find out more, please contact 01271 871425.
