A Drop in the Ocean

Seaside Caravan Park boss


A seaside caravan park boss, who has been a long-standing supporter of tourism in the Great Yarmouth area, has been given a lifetime achievement award.

Don Peers has a half century of experience at the family-run tourer and static Grasmere site at Caister, started by his great great grandfather in 1850.

He has been involved since a child and on neighbouring sites has added a 12-chalet site and converted a town house into award-winning apartments.

Mr Peers, 67, who is also a Methodist lay preacher in the Great Yarmouth circuit, said he was thrilled to receive the honour at the climax of an awards ceremony held by the Greater Yarmouth Tourism and Business Improvement Area.

He won the prestigious title for his 20 years of commitment to promoting local tourism, where he has been a stalwart member of the Tourist Authority and the Business Improvement District (BID).

Two hundred nominees and guests attended the Town Hall ceremony celebrating the achievements of people and companies in tourism and, for the first time, the wider business sector.
