Pontins, Hemsby, Norfolk
Photo Description:
In 1987, Pontins was sold to a management buyout team led by Trevor Hemmings, whose construction firm had originally built the holiday centre at Southport. It was sold yet again in 1989, this time to Scottish & Newcastle. Over the next ten years the company closed or sold a number of sites. In a three-year programme in the mid- 1990s, the remaining camps were modernised. In 2000 the company, which now owned only eight camps, was sold back to Hemmings.
