With so many of our wonderful members of our Thornley team working around the clock to give you holiday home happiness, we thought a regular blog on who they are and what makes them tick would be a good read! After all, there’s no one who knows our holiday homes quite like our park managers and further Thornley family so who better to ask for local tips and tricks?! Up next is Chris Darbey, Assistant Manager and self proclaimed ‘plumber extraordinaire!’ at The Beach Caravan Park, Llanddulas.
Name: Chris Darbey
Park: The Beach, Llanddulas
Position: Assistant Manager/Plumber
How long have you worked for Thornley Leisure? 19 years
What do you enjoy most about your role? Everyday is different and also getting to visit the different parks.
I can most likely be found… Trying to play snooker
My favourite things about The Beach are: I think it’s hard to find a better location so close to the sea, it always looks great and the view is amazing.
My best tips for the surrounding area are: Go and visit Snowdonia as there are lots of things to do for both children and adults.
I enjoy working at The Beach because: I’ve really enjoyed seeing the park evolve over the time I’ve been here and seeing how the caravans have developed. I have also had the chance to meet lots of nice people along the way as well and I’m sure I’ll meet many more.
My advice to people looking to own a caravan would be: Location, location, location.
If I could recommend one must see/do in the local area it would be: I enjoy water sports so I would say you have to visit Adventure Parc Snowdonia. There is a lot more than just surfing there.
In my spare time I’m usually… Riding my bike, playing snooker, wake surfing or in The Beachcomber watching the football… (normally Everton losing).
Any parting words? Thanks to everyone who has made these 19 years an enjoyable journey. See you on park or in The Beachcomber!
The Beach has some wonderful holiday homes available on site at the moment, so if you’re looking to own a holiday home on the North Wales coast within easy reach of Snowdonia and the towns of Llandudno and Conwy then why not book a park tour today?
