FAMILY and staff at a holiday park are celebrating after their business was named as a finalist in this year’s White Rose Awards for tourism.

Riverside Caravan Park in High Bentham has been declared by judges to be among the best holiday providers in the county.

Now business owners Thomas Marshall and his wife Jane must wait until November 12 in Harrogate to see if Riverside is crowned as overall winner in the ‘holiday parks’ category.

Mr Marshall maintains this could be the park’s busiest ever summer in its 49-year history. He said: “It’s especially pleasing because an important criterion is the hospitality and quality of welcome which is provided to holiday guests.”
