A pair of Clevedon residential parks have been bought out by a new operator.

Suremime has purchased The Bay and Sandbanks, both in Walton Bay, after receiving a seven-figure loan from Lloyds Bank.

The company, established in 1981, specialises in holiday parks but is hoping to continue its growth by adding a residential arm to its portfolio.

Suremime director Geoff Atkinson said: “The purchase of the residential estates marks a whole new business venture for us.

“As a business, we have more than 40 years of experience in the holiday and travel sector, and we’re looking forward to transferring these skills in the residential industry.”

The Bay is made up of 18 homes while Sandbanks is a gated community comprising 25 homes.

Suremime will employ two extra staff following its purchase of the Clevedon sites.
