A holiday park is getting four new caravans as part of an £80 million-plus investment in sites by its parent company.
A total £110,000 will be spent on St Margaret's Bay Holiday Park by operators Parkdean Resorts.
The old fleet of caravans will be replaced and a new indoor children's play area built as part of the nationwide investment.
The site employs more than 50 staff in season and managers are currently hiring for a number of seasonal roles in sales, food and drink and housekeeping.
Steve Richards, chief executive of Parkdean Resorts, said: “We’ve made great progress in the last year and our success is down to the passion of our teams in helping to deliver great holiday experiences for our customers.
"We want to build on momentum in 2020, so we’re on the lookout for vibrant people to join our teams at our Kentish parks.”
The investment in St Margaret’s Bay is part of the company’s largest ever annual investment in its estate.
Parkdean is also putting in more than £13 million to provide free high-speed Wi-Fi in every caravan and lodge across all 67 of its parks across Great Britain.
It is one of the first in the industry to do so.
The company also operates Romney Sands Holiday Park in Greatstone, Romney Marsh.
Parkdean Resorts is the UK’s largest operator of caravan, lodge, cabin, glamping and camping holiday resorts, and was named Best UK Family Holiday Company 2019 at the British Travel Awards.
This is the UK’s biggest opinion poll for travel and tourism in the country.
The company’s most recent financial results showed like-for-like revenue for 2019 at Parkdean Resorts was up 5% to £453.2 million.
It is this that has allowed it to invest the £80 million.
