Waldegraves Holiday Park 70th Birthday Celebrations
2018 marks 70 glorious years in business for Waldegraves Holiday Park! We’ve come a long way since those early days, what began as a few caravans sited along the coast in 1948 has blossomed into one of the county’s most popular destinations for touring, camping and caravan holidays.
We will mark the anniversary with an open-to-all mini-festival on the Saturday 30th of June. There will be music, rides, games, plenty of food and drinks stalls showcasing the local produce from businesses on the island. When night falls, the famous Waldegraves fireworks will take to the skies. If you are a local business, we would like to invite you to apply for a stall at the event, please collect a form from Waldegraves Reception. The monies raised will go to the local charities.
There is plenty to celebrate. The 70 years have seen Waldegraves 3 times winner of the Best Campsite/Caravan Park of The Year in the Essex Tourism and Hospitality Awards and a Bronze Award for Excellence in the 2014 Visit England Awards. In 2016 Aspire presented the park with their Crystal Trophy Award for Exclusive Holiday Park of The Year. The Park once again has been awarded with a David Bellamy Conservation Gold Award 2017/18 for putting green concerns at the heart of their business for 12 consecutive years.
We are planning to make a collage for our 70th anniversary. If you would like to contribute to our project, please share with us any photos you have from a holiday at Waldegraves over the last 70 years. Post your photos with a caption and date taken, if known, on our facebook page. The sender of our favourite photo will win £70 of our Park vouchers.
