Bidders line up for Pontin's
Thursday 06 January 2011
Hopes were raised for the future of the Pontin's holiday-camp brand yesterday after administrators confirmed they had received 10 offers for the chain.
Administrators at KPMG said they were confident of securing a sale in the coming weeks after receiving the bids for Pontin's.
The holiday company called in administrators in November, but all five sites – at Brean Sands in Somerset, Camber Sands in East Sussex, Pakefield in Suffolk, Prestatyn Sands in Wales and Southport in Merseyside – are being run as normal while a buyer is sought. KPMG said the majority of bidders were interested in keeping the business going and retaining the Pontin's brand.
