Leestone Caravan Park, a family business, has seen stark changes in its clientele and the nature of holiday makers over the past 10 years with an increase in ‘stay-cations’. The business was keen to continue to attract a wide range of customers and cater for their needs and in order to do this an application to Axis 4 of the European Fisheries Fund was made.

The Fisheries Local Action Group approved the application for a new customer service and information office, laundry facilities and tennis court fencing which has significantly increased the quality of service provided by Leestone Caravan Park. This has significant benefits to the local area by attracting greater numbers to invest and spend time in the fishing dependent community of Kilkeel and surrounding area.
