Pontins Brean Sands will close in November

Pontins Brean Sands will close at the start of November following the Government issuing fresh restrictions.

Bosses at the popular holiday resort said they were ‘incredibly saddened and disappointed’ to announce the news, but people’s safety had to come first.

Guests who have already booked will be contacted to discuss their options.

This week, Boris Johnson introduced a new three-tiered system, which means anyone in the top categories are banned from all non-essential travel.

It’s also expected that a circuit-breaker lockdown of two weeks could be announced next week.

A Pontins spokesperson said: “We are incredibly saddened and disappointed to make this announcement but as always, the health and safety of our guests and staff will remain our main priority and these are the actions we unfortunately need to take.

“We are hopeful for better times, the gathering of people and we will be ready to welcome you back to our Parks at the beginning of February 2021.

“If your holiday is affected, then we will be in touch with you in due course so please bear with us and do not call at this time.

“We will be contacting guests in date order to discuss their options.

“We would like to thank our guests for their continued support throughout these unprecedented times and we hope to see everyone again in 2021.”
