Planning a holiday?
Hope KPA’s caravan
The caravan is situated in Staining (at Newton Hall Caravan Park), a Lancashire village 3-4 miles from Blackpool. It will be open for business from the beginning of March; many people enjoyed a break there last year. The accommodation is luxuriously furnished and equipped with central heating, double glazing, 3 bedrooms (sleeping 6-8 people) and 2 bathrooms (one with shower) as well as having lovely countryside views. There is a fully fitted kitchen with fridge and microwave and the lounge/diner has a put-u-up sofa and multi-channel tv/dvd. For those less firm the entrance is enhanced by a ramp and there is an electrically powered mobility scooter available for use. Outside there is a lawned area and patio. Booking is essential, contact Committee Member, Ann Hunt on 07769 713087, who will be happy provide you with availability and booking form. Alternatively, you can send a question using the contact form.

Holiday in Mallorca
“Dear Readers, I was speaking to Kath Barlow a couple of months ago about the Hotel Cala Bona where we spent our holiday. The hotel is situated in an exclusive spot in the old fishing harbour of Cala Bona, Mallorca. Kath asked me to send the KPA, informa on about it as it could be useful to members who need accommodation suitable for their needs. The hotel has two apartments both of which are ideal for someone confined to a wheelchair as they have wet rooms and a shower chair in them. You can hire a hoist if needed from a company there and a taxi with a ramp. I found it worked out much cheaper than booking through a holiday company (eg we went with Monarch who were charging £408.00 for an adapted vehicle for 6 people—I booked 2 taxis cos ng £260.00!). Last year we made our booking through a company that specialises in holidays for the disabled, it le a lot to be desired, we were really disappointed. To book the hotel you have to do it direct, by phone or email. Both the hoist and the taxi can be booked via email. Below are the links for each, which I hope can be of use to anyone in the Association.”
Enjoy, Ann Lawton (Carer)
