behind the scenes at Talacre Beach

June 6, 2016

Ever wonder how our holiday parks look as fantastic as they do? It’s not really by magic, take a look at our all-star Grounds Team at Talacre Beach! Talacre Beach Holiday Home Park is located on the North Wales coastline, just a 5 minute walk away from the Beach. This 5 Star, award winning park has loads to offer, from our fantastic entertainments team with their Go Active programme to the culinary delights of our fabulous restaurant! But first impressions are important, and our talented Grounds Team make sure your first impression is a beautiful one!

Meet Brad (our resident David Beckham look-a-like), he is our Head of Grounds but as you can see that doesn’t mean he doesn’t like to get stuck in! (I think he really is stuck in that bush…). A very friendly and funny bloke, Brad helps to organise our Grounds Team and keep Talacre looking 5 Star fantastic!

In the image below is Phil, who is the newest and youngest member of the team, having recently left the leisure department as Talacre’s lifeguard to join the wild outdoors! Phil, convinced he looks like Smitt from New Girl, loves his new position, out in the sunshine and happily joking with the rest of the lads on Talacre’s Grounds Team. Phil is trimming the side entrance to Talacre’s Lodge accommodation in these pictures, along with a lot of laughter, and a few poses.

Brad, Phil and Jon are working hard on the lodge accommodation’s garden, they do this every Friday, which is our ‘change over’ day, so as not to disturb any guests in the lodges. This gives them only a short amount of time to get the gardens looking perfect for the next guest! In the picture below Phil was using a big scary machine, called a Long Handled Hedged Trimmer, I was slightly scared for my life and abruptly stopped teasing… But there was nothing to worry about, as you can see safety comes first at Talacre Beach, and Phil was very professional, efficient and wore all his safety gear!

Below we have the lovely Emyr and Luke, who were working on the second lodge, trimming the mini-trees (I’m probably going to get told off calling them that…), and check out that lawn ladies and gents! Absolutely immaculate, both very lovely blokes with ready smiles and who really enjoy their jobs!

Below is the fabulous Jon, another friendly face who loves a chat with our great holiday home owners. In the images below he is working on the flower beds around the park, putting compost on them to help keep them nourished and looking healthy, as well as checking on our smallest guests here at Talacre Beach in the insect hotel!

Our Grounds Team work super hard to maintain our beautiful park, working across all areas of the resort as well as feature aspects around the surrounding area too. You will often hear them laughing and joking as you wander around the park, they are a very friendly bunch, come rain or shine, so stop to say hello if you see them, or give them a wave and let them know how much we love them!

So now you know how the magic really happens here at Talacre Beach, our very own bunch of wonderful green fingered heroes take care of everything!
