Hendra Holiday Park has appointed a new director.

Tom May is a third-generation family member of the business, which has been owned by the same family throughout its 50 years in business, following in the footsteps of Rebecca May, Robert May, Janine Hyatt, Bob Hyatt, Jon Hyatt and finance director Will Dexter.

MD Jon Hyatt said: “We’re committed to maintaining Hendra as a local family business for many generations to come.

“Appointing another third generation family member, Tom as director, helps us to strengthen the family business and continue with the family name.

“Being a family-owned independent park for so many years is rare, and something we’re really proud of, it’s one of our unique selling points and forms part of the reason why our guests continue to holiday with us year after year. We want to stick to our Cornish roots and having Tom on board will really help us to drive the brand forward.”

Tom May, who has been working within the business for the past eight years, said: “I am very pleased to be part of the board of directors as we enter our 51st year in business. As we navigate through the challenges of the year ahead, I’m eager to drive forward a range of projects that will help to grow the Hendra brand and offer more services to our guests.”
