    Pontins have reportably offered their camps to the UK Government to house some of the Afghan refugees arriving into the UK.

    Pontins has six holiday parks Southport, Weston-Super-Mare, Camber Sands in East Sussex, Lowestoft in Suffolk, Kewstoke in Somerset, and Prestatyn in north Wales.

    A government source confirmed the news, which was first reported by the Telegraph (paywall), saying: “It is right we look at every option and every offer of support.”

    It is reported that two sites are being considered by the Government.

    Probably against their human rights putting them in Pontins.

    It was an insult to our defence personnel to house them at Pontins, but it is more than likely the Afghanistan people will take one look and never set foot in the UK ever again.

    "In September 2007, Manchester Crown Court fined Britannia Hotels £39,486 for food hygiene offences at the Britannia Hotel in Stockport, shortly after TripAdvisor rated it as one of Britain's dirtiest hotels.[44] In December 2014, the Nuneaton Justice Centre fined Britannia Hotels £25,400 for food hygiene offences at the Royal Court Hotel in Coventry.[45]
    Britannia Hotels was prosecuted for breaking health and safety laws after a student drowned at the Adelphi.[46] In November 2015, the Liverpool Echo investigated a guest's complaints about the Adelphi. In June 2017, the Adelphi was prosecuted for breaches of food safety and hygiene regulations.Further issues with the Adelphi have been reported since. The Liverpool Echo visited the Company's headquarters in June 2019 to interview a spokesperson about the complaints, but no-one would see them.
    In 2013 in Canterbury Crown Court the chain was ordered to pay £200,000 in fines and costs for putting guests and construction workers at risk of exposure to asbestos at the Grand Burstin Hotel in Folkestone.[53]
    In 2021, the chain was fined £86,000 after an employee fell through rusted railings and suffered life-changing injuries at the Prince of Wales Hotel in Southport. Sefton Council also issued an improvement notice after no attempt was made to make the area safe after the accident occurred."

    You can get Tripadvisor in Afghanistan so I imagine many of them are savvy enough to refuse to go.

    Health Inspectors/Trading Standards have they been decimated too like the Police, do the public of this Country not deserve protection from the likes of Britannia. I feel sorry for families I see walking up Shore Rd Ainsdale with suitcases and happy kids knowing that in a short while their excitement will be short lived.

    Realistically anyone turning up to a Britannia establishment from this country and many others with an internet connection knows or should know what their getting.

    Britannia has managed to prosper on the backs of people who shop on price alone and blinker themselves.


    They seem to take more care picking a takeaway than a holiday.
