We have had some changes to the team, so we thought we’d take this chance to introduce you to all the Delamere Team members:
Peter has recently been appointed as Park Manager. He comes from a retail background with over 20- years’ experience in customer facing roles. Peter is a massive football fan, although is hush-hush about which team he supports!
Hope heads up the role as Park Administrator. Hope has been at Delamere for just under a year. She is an avid traveller, having travelled around the world seeing weird and wonderful places.
Steve is the on-park Sales Executive. He has over 20 years in the sales industry, and has been on park for 3 years, and is particularly passionate about all the wonderful wildlife to be found on park. He is also an avid lover of food, and a keen cook.
Neil, Karl & Sheri oversee Grounds maintenance. Neil has been working at Delamere for several years, and can solve many a problem, always with a keen eye. Karl, having been at Delamere since June last year, is experienced in several areas, and recently appointed Sheri. Sheri comes with experience in the maintenance industry, and forms part of a growing maintenance team. She has a love for dogs, and the great outdoors.
The new development on park is progressing well. Five lodges are now on site with more arriving shorty. Planting is now starting, and so as the plants take roots and begin to grow, the park start to blossom. With Phase 3 being developed, meaning more lodges popping up around the lakes, and with Spring on our doorstep, we should really start to see the fruit of our labour. Currently, we are aiming for completion around the end of April.
With new lodges comes the possibility of new opportunities, and if you’d like to look around at the new lodges available, please speak to the Sales Team to arrange an appointment. You can get hold of the sales team on 0800 029 4751.
Every year our ecologist provides Delamere Lakes with an ecology report. This report for the park covers everything from wildlife, nesting birds to ecology management, and comes part of the planning consent on the site.
The report highlights that we have many animals that are on the IUCN red list of endangered species. As of the end of 2022, there were 11 Red-listed and 22 Amber-listed birds of conservation concern. There is also 1 Red-listed butterfly, the Wall Brown (with 15 butterfly species being recorded in total on the site). Several new species were spotted onsite last year, such as marsh orchid and the Amber-listed cattle egret. excitement to see what other species will decide to make home on park.
We are very proud of the different wildlife that can be spotted throughout the seasons. With spring approaching, rabbits, foxes and stoats have been spotted, even our first butterfly. With bird breeding season approaching, we should soon be able to spot Oyster catchers nesting on the island.
The grounds team have been busy adding new ecology equipment round the park; Bird nest boxes, bat boxes, bee houses, hedgehog homes and moth traps. New wildlife monitoring cameras have been added, helping us keep an eye on what animals we share our home with. We cannot wait to show you what they find in the next newsletter.
Have you seen special sightings lately? We’d love to hear from you!
What a sight it was driving into work on Thursday morning, the 9th of March: as I drove in, I was welcomed by a flurry of snow. This continued throughout the course of the morning, falling even heavier as the day continued, until we were surrounded by a blanket of white! Under foot and walking around the park the snow was quite thick, and even later in the day, to quote an old saying ‘the sky is still full of snow’. To look at the snow on the lodges was so picturesque – it was a winter wonderland, as we’re heading into Spring! The view across the lake felt like a different country miles from anywhere.
Located approximately 20-minute drive away from the park is Crocky Trail Kids Adventure Park. Located in Waverton, Chester (CH3 7PH), Crocky Trails is a great day out with the kids, even if the weather isn’t great! From muddy trails and wobbly bridges to wild slides and tummy churning rides, it’s sure to bring out the adventure in them!
Our tip: it might be messy- don’t wear clothes that are precious, and be sure to pack a towel and some spare clothing just in case.
To ensure the safety and enjoyment of all owners and guests on the resort, please be sure to adhere to the following safety regulations:
We look forward to catching up with you again in our next newsletter, and looking forward to seeing you soon.
