Thanks to the generosity of so many individuals, the American Woman of Surrey and the Surrey Community Foundation we were able to purchase a newer caravan and it has already been enjoyed by lots of families. Late last year we decided we wanted to upgrade our caravan at Pagham as our old van was looking a bit tired, although very loved.
Having a newer van has ensured we will keep this project going for a few more years. It’s a fantastic privilege to be able to offer families a much needed holiday at a price they can afford. This dream started shortly after B@titude opened when we realised a full shop in the summer months was because families never have the opportunity to get away. Since this project started in 2007, over 100 families and individuals have had a holiday.
Our caravan sleeps 8 people and is situated on a Haven Holiday site in Pagham, near Bognor Regis which means families have the opportunity to visit the beach, use all of the facilities Haven offer and it’s not too far away to travel from Surrey.
Below are some pictures of our new van and some quotes from people who have enjoyed a holiday already this year.
I would like to say a big big thank you for letting us use your wonderful caravan for our annual holiday. We had amazing weather and just had an awesome time! The caravan was just great and accommodated us so well. It was super clean and modern and the children loved having there own rooms as at home they share a bedroom.
Enclosed are just a few of our many photos from our special family holiday.
Much love Adisorn, Keeley, Leysorn and Kadiey x

“B@titude Caravan is of huge importance to the Harmer Family. Since I was little I have known Church Farm holiday park as my grandparents had a holiday home there for many years. I have watched the park grow and change in so many ways . I wanted to give my children as many memories as I have had as a child from my holidays. But unfortunately money for many people is tight and a simple holiday is something we all long for but at what cost? Now B@titude Caravan not only offer affordable holidays, but due to the fantastic facilities it has everything you could ask for in one place. And with this being the main family time together its important for everyone to have fun. There are fantastic local attractions for those with transport and also brilliant activities to entertain all the family. I especially love it as my granddad lives just a 5 minute drive from the park and we get to have days out at the beach and locally with him too, making our time there even more special. Each year my 3 boys Beg to go back to the caravan.
