Frodsham Conservative MP Chris Evans will officially open the site at a ceremony on Saturday June 4th that will be attended by local and regional business owners, caravan enthusiasts and representatives of the council and Visit Chester and Cheshire.
Mr Faulkner, a Cheshire born farmer turned entrepreneur will tell his guests that the opening of the site marks the completion of a 15 year dream to develop a once traditional Cheshire farm into three thriving businesses.
After buying the land in 1996 Mr Faulkner opened the Whitley Brook Crematorium to offer vets and animal lovers a caring cremation service and created the Lady Heyes Craft and Antique Centre. Both businesses have grown significantly in the intervening years.
Now the opening of the 85-caravan touring park on a seven acre site complete with ultra-modern office accommodation and laundry and shower block with under floor heating and with easy access to a nearby restaurant completes Mr Faulkner’s grand plan.
“I’m delighted with the end result,” said Mr Faulkner, who is married with two children. “The site commands wonderful views of the Cheshire countryside bordering the River Weaver and offers guests access to Delamere Forest, Chester and the Wirral.
“I believe Lady Heyes Park will offer tourists and visitors a stunning value-for-money introduction to the delights of Cheshire. And by bringing visitors here we will be doing our bit to boost local businesses.
“I’m expecting the site to be extremely busy because expert forecasts suggest the challenging economic conditions will lead to many more people holidaying here in the UK this summer. Why spend a small fortune on flights overseas when tourists can experience the delights, history and countryside of beautiful Cheshire for a fraction of the cost?
“In fact, on the question of costs, I’m offering half price site fees for the rest of this year in recognition of the fact that many folk are experiencing tough times. I’m also offering caravan owners the opportunity to experience Lady Heyes Caravan Park absolutely free during the opening weekend from June 3 until June 5th.
“I’m sure once they have experienced the facilities on site, the beautiful views that surround us and shopping treat that is our neighbour Lady Heyes Craft and Antique Centre they will return year after year.”
