BelgraviaPRO, a tourism and holiday parks management company, is set to manage Mawley Holiday Park in Masterton from 1 November 2018.
Masterton District Council (MDC) has confirmed BelgraviaPRO, a subsidiary of Belgravia Health & Leisure Group, as the successful tenderer and new operator to take over from Rodney and Jelena Algie.
The Algies have been running Mawley Holiday Park for seven years, which MDC Community and Facilities Manager Andrea Jackson said made the decision to find a new operator challenging.
“The Algies have done a fantastic job of running Mawley Holiday Park and we’re sorry to see them go – we wish them all the best,” Ms Jackson said.
Belgravia Leisure also runs the Council’s Trust House Recreation Centre. Recently, Belgravia’s Victor Thompson, who works at the recreation centre, won the New Zealand Recreation Association’s Lifeguard of the Year, and additionally Belgravia Leisure won the NZ Aquatic Innovation Award.
“We’re thrilled to have found a new operator for Mawley Holiday Park that we know and trust,” Ms Jackson said.
“We highly regard Belgravia Health & Leisure’s capabilities and proven track record of professional experience operating Trust House Recreation Centre and their considerable knowledge of the local area.”
BelgraviaPRO plans to combine the scale and efficiency of existing resources at Trust House Recreation Centre and provide a better service offering to the holiday park users.
“Through proven marketing, promotion and social media campaigns, BelgraviaPRO will drive visitation and deliver an improved return to Masterton District Council over and above what any other operator can achieve,” said Alexia Morgan, Acting General Manager for BelgraviaPRO.
“BelgraviaPRO has enjoyed considerable success in improving the patronage of its facilities via innovative guest engagement programs and marketing.
“We’re looking forward to discussing with Council plans for potential future capital investment, in an effort to achieve greater returns and outcomes.”
