BOSSES at Wemyss Bay Holiday Park welcomed local MP Ronnie Cowan for a tour of the facility.

Parkdean Resorts employ over 150 people in peak season at the site and welcomed approximately 27,000 visitors last year.

The team at Wemyss Bay gave Mr Cowan a look around and discussed how they are working to create a 'positive environmental impact on nature and resources'.

Greenock Telegraph:

The park has over 400 holiday home owners who regularly visit with their families throughout the year.

In 2022 it received a cash injection of over £600,000 which went towards accommodation and facilities upgrades.

Greenock Telegraph:

Management say this helps attract holidaymakers to the area to spend money in local shops, pubs and restaurants.

Colin Pearse, regional director at Parkdean Resorts, said: "We’re proud of the role our parks play in supporting the local economy and look forward to working closely with Mr Cowan to continue to benefit the constituency of Inverclyde.”

MP Mr Cowan added: “It was a pleasure to meet Colin and general manager Mandy MacWhirter during my recent visit to Wemyss Bay holiday park, and we had an open and honest discussion around a number of topics which had been brought to me.

“The park is tucked away up the back of Wemyss Bay and despite its close proximity to the A78, the ferry terminal and the award-winning railway station it maintains a rural feeling which enables the customers to relax and enjoy the facilities provided.

"It was good to hear of local people that are employed on site and to witness the spin-off to the local economy."
