850 jobs safe after Pontin's sale


Tuesday February 1st 2011

Administrators have announced the sale of holiday camp brand Pontin's - safeguarding the jobs of all 850 staff who were concerned about their future incomes.

The holiday firm, which called in administrators KPMG in November, has been snapped up by the Britannia Hotel Group, owners of the famous Adelphi hotel in Liverpool.

Alex Langsam, owner of Britannia, said: "The prospects for Pontin's are very exciting. Our plans will take shape without delay as we look towards developing a bright future whilst retaining the best traditions of the past.

"Pontin's will remain a national treasure, to be enjoyed by generations to come."

All five sites - at Brean Sands in Somerset, Camber Sands in Sussex, Pakefield in Suffolk, Prestatyn Sands in Denbighshire and Southport in Merseyside - have run as normal while KPMG searched for a buyer.
