Restaurant refurbished at Berwick Holiday Park
Mayor of Berwick Hazel Bettison recently opened the newly transformed restaurant The Brigs of Tweed at Berwick Holiday Park.
The project was completed by local firms PJB Building and Joinery, Iain Grieve painter and decorators and Steven Monks electrical.
With some 90,000 visitors expected in 2016, The Brigs will deliver a fantastic dining experience in a theme that emulates the best of Berwick.
The design incorporates historical pieces and even has a sentry box from Berwick Barracks.
The refurbished area also includes a new gaming and drinking area, separate to the main dining area.
Councillor Bettison said: “It was a pleasure to open the new restaurant.
“My life in Berwick began in the 1970s on Berwick Holiday Centre.
“Speaking to some of the caravan owners that night they were thrilled with it.
“It is light and airy and a great place for them to socialise over a drink and eat from a fantastic menu.
“As one of our town’s best employers, who boost our economy in tourism, I wish them well.”
With nearly 550 private holiday-home owners, the park is clearly a destination to get away from the urban and enjoy beautiful Berwick and its surrounding area.
The Brigs of Tweed employs 40 team members as part of the 200-strong local team that work on the park.
The park also works closely with local producers such as Doddington Dairy whose ice cream is a tasty addition on its varied menu.
Berwick Holiday Park are currently still recruiting for their busy 2016 season that started on Friday.
It is now one of the largest employers in the town.
There are many attractions on the park, including swimming pools and entertainment.
However, it is hoped more of its visitors will spend time – and their holiday money – in the town centre and surrounding areas and exploring the rich history and heritage it has to offer.
The footpath linking the holiday park with Berwick has been refurbished over the winter by Northumberland County Council.
