As we close the office for the christmas holiday it is time to wish you a happy and restful Christmas. We shall re open on Thursday 27 December in readiness for those making their plans for holidays in the new year be it a summer holiday or an early winter break.
This year has been challenging and again at the time of writing this blog it is raining! The poor weather in the spring and early summer had a significant impact on the market generally and then the Olympic and Paralympic Games caught just about everyone's imagination with little else happening! For 2013 we certainly don't have any Olympic Games to distract us and we cannot expect a repeat of this year's weather, can we?
Despite the weather we have had a strong year with holidays taken in the market towns such as Arundel being particularly popular especially as such towns have appeal in winter as well as summer. In addition our beach holiday cottages especially those in West Sussex which benefit from a micro climate due to our proximity to the Isle Of Wight have enjoyed good summer weather where to the north of the South Downs it may have been raining. The Downs of course are always a popular draw, good for walking and cycling and the National Park status continues to attract people here.
We hope to see you sometime next year.
