North Wales MP David Jones has declared open a new country club at a family's holiday park near Rhyl, and praised its contribution to Wales's tourism economy.

Mr Jones, who is MP for Clwyd West, was at Caeran Caravan Park near Abergele to see how the award-winning business plays its part in attracting thousands of visitors each year to the region.

He made his visit during the recent annual Wales Tourism Week which is designed to put the spotlight on Wales's £5 billion tourism sector.

The MP met with business owners Arthur and Pamela Jones who acquired the park seven years ago, and who have since invested much time and energy into create a first-class holiday setting.

During his visit, David Jones took time out to cut the ribbon on The Mill, the park's recently built country club where guests can meet and relax when staying.

The MP commented: "I was delighted to see how investment in the new facilities at Caeran Caravan Park is helping the business go from strength to strength.

Our area is one of the most attractive in the country, and high quality parks such as Caeran give holidaymakers access to the very best that North Wales has to offer.

"Wales Tourism Week helps focus attention on a vitally important industry for our local economy, and I am very pleased to show my support," he added.

Bounded by the River Elwy in a picture-postcard valley, Caeran was founded around 1960 and provides more than 50 privately owned caravan holiday homes in its seven acre grounds.

The park is a holder of the prestigious David Bellamy Conservation Bronze Award which celebrates tourism businesses making exceptional efforts to protect the natural world.

The park, Arthur Jones told the MP, allows people to own a holiday home in Wales and contribute to the economy without diminishing local housing stock or artificially inflating prices.

Many small enterprises in the region, he said, rely on the spending generated by holiday home owners and other visitors to sustain their businesses and the jobs they provide.

"We were delighted that Mr Jones was able to join us at Caeran Caravan Park, and to learn more about our sector and how it helps attract families to North Wales," he said.

"Mr Jones clearly recognises the importance of tourism to this region, and is aware of the many challenges as well as opportunities faced by businesses such as ours.

"We feel very privileged and live and work in this wonderful corner of Wales, and are grateful for the continuing support and encouragement of our MP," he added.

In addition to co-managing Caeran with Pamela, Arthur is Secretary of the Clwyd branch of the BH&HPA, the national representative body of the holiday parks industry.
