Award winning, five-star, Hendra Holiday Park, in Newquay, is one of Cornwall’s biggest parks and has recently appointed a new director, firmly establishing the third generation of the family run park, which celebrates 40 years in 2012. Jon Hyatt, 26, is the son of directors Bob and Janine Hyatt and the nephew of directors Robert and Rebecca May.


Jon went to the University of Oxford where he studied Chemistry and after going travelling for several months with his soon to be wife, Jodie, he returned to Cornwall in 2008. Rather than exploring a career in the city he decided to come back to Cornwall: “I realised what a great place Cornwall was, and you can’t beat it, with dramatic scenery right on your doorstep it has so much to offer. Of course the opportunity to join the family business was fantastic and the main driver for returning. After three years in the business I certainly see my future here.”


Jon is especially interested in enhancing the park on a sustainable level and was closely involved in the latest project of creating Hendra’s Solar PV farm, which provides over 50% of the parks power. Jon said: “The solar farm has been one of the park’s main priorities for a while and I was pleased when it was completed on time early last month. Hendra is, as far as we are aware, the first solar powered holiday park in the UK. As Hendra’s new director I hope to be part of lots of new and innovative sustainability projects.”


Jon also said: “I am really looking forward to the new challenges and responsibilities in this new role, in what is a dynamic company with a great team behind it. In addition to specific development projects such as minimising our future energy costs I will also be taking an in depth look at the various aspects and operations of the business, so I will certainly be very busy!”
