Ballot now open for our seaside holiday homes
Yes, it’s that time of year again when we open our holiday home ballot for discounted seaside breaks.
The Devon and the Dorset coast are already seeing a high demand for 2021/2022 holidays and we don’t want members to miss out on a chance to stay at one of our beautiful homes.
Valued members of the Benevolent Fund are eligible to bid for a week to stay at either of our holiday homes, Peel’s Retreat, Weymouth or Court Cottage in Dartmouth.
Court Cottage, sleeps up to four people and offers members and their families a fabulous holiday in South Devon.
The quaint two-bedroom luxury residence is situated on the Hillfield Village self-catering holiday estate and is just two miles from Dartmouth.
Our second holiday property, is the ever popular, Peel’s Retreat in Weymouth, Dorset. This seaside property sleeps up to 6 people and dogs are welcome.
Whether it’s for a traditional family holiday filled with crabbing, sandcastles and ice creams, an Easter break or that much needed time away to recharge your batteries, there are great discounts for members to book a fantastic holiday.
“We know how much disruption and uncertainty there was last year, with many of us having to sacrifice holidays”, explains John Williams, Benevolent Fund Chairman.
“We hope to welcome members back to our holiday homes as soon as it is safe to do so. I’m sure when this happens there will be a lot of interest from members wishing to take a well- earned break at one of our seaside retreats.”
People can register their interest via our online booking calendar on the website www.wmpben.co.uk now until 4 February 2020 and then a ballot will take place to decide which members have been successful with their bid.
Any remaining weeks (not requested in the ballot) can be booked via our online calendar on a first come first serve basis.
Visit www.wmpben.co.uk to register your interest.
After the disruption to travel and holidays last year, a number of our members, who unfortunately had their booking cancelled, were given the opportunity to re-scheduled their holiday for this season. Weeks showing as unavailable on the calendar are the weeks that have been re-allocated for these members.
Hopefully we won’t have the same level of disruption and uncertainty this year, however please be reassured that all future bookings can be refunded if a member is forced to cancel due to coronavirus.
