We are sure our readers will have noticed the way traditional, some might even say old fashioned, female and male roles are being challenged in the media, and especially on TV. Sports fans will have noticed an increase in the coverage of female football and cricket teams, as well as more female TV commentators and pundits.
Have we got news for you!
Here at The Barton Group, we are very much looking forward to the imminent arrival of Spring, and we are proud to present our best tips, tricks and advice for a wow factor garden for your park home or holiday lodge.

If the time has come for a simple refresh of your park home or lodge or if you are planning a major refurbishment, we are delighted to provide some advice and inspiration. The key decisions maybe whether to spend money on the interior or exterior, whether to go for a make-over, full refurbishment or even to upgrade to a new model.
Pets, and in particular, cats and dogs can be perfectly compatible with life on a residential or holiday park, often providing their owners with more benefits than just companionship.

Sometimes it feels as if we are all being pushed into using the internet for things we would prefer to do face to face, or by good old-fashioned Royal Mail. For many park home residents using the internet is a daunting prospect, and fears of online fraud don’t exactly fill us all with confidence. Nevertheless, the benefits almost certainly outweigh the dangers, and with more and more offers and services being provided exclusively by websites and applications known as “apps”, there is no better time to dive in and discover the wonders of the online world.
There is a new trend in astronomy. It’s called astrotourism, where eco-minded travellers search out locations, far and wide, to find the clearest skies for gazing at the stars and moon and finding distant galaxies. However, for aspiring astronomers, residential and holiday parks have a built in advantage, often giving clear access to the best night skies without even leaving the park. In association with Bartons Group here are our suggestions on how you can begin your own astronomy adventure without packing a suitcase.

Life on a residential park frequently offers the chance to join a ready-made community of like-minded people, of a similar age, and with shared interests. Indeed, this sense of neighbourliness adds to the feeling of security and relaxation that residents often remark on, when they move to parks such as Barton Group’s Glenholt Park, in Plymouth.
