Bridge Leisure has been brought in by the administrators of Pontin’s to manage the parks until a buyer has been found.


Pontin’s appointed  KPMG on Friday after experiencing a dramatic fall in bookings. The parks – Brean Sands in Somerset, Camber Sands in Sussex, Pakefield in Suffolk, Prestatyn Sands in Wales and Southport in Merseyside – will remain open and taking bookings as usual.


No redundancies have been made, and KPMG is said to be confident of finding a buyer and retaining the Pontin’s name.


Reports claim 40 ‘serious players’ have shown an interest in buying the parks.


Dave Costley-Wood, a partner in Manchester-based KPMG, told the newspaper the future looks bright for the company.


“We’re going to have to make a handful of redundancies at the head office in Southport – around four or five people – but there will be no redundancies at any of the camps,” he said.


“We’ve brought in Bridge Leisure to help us run them and will be conducting a sale from next week over the next two to three months.”
