On Saturday 27th October we’ll be throwing our annual owners’ Halloween party again so make sure to get your spookiest costume at the ready. Doors will open at 5pm for games, face painting, tattoos and nail painting followed by food for the little ones served from 5:30pm to 6:30pm. The hot and cold buffet for the adults will then be served from 7:30pm followed by dancing until midnight. Tickets can be booked using our online booking system and are limited to eight tickets per holiday lodge.

The chefs take great pride in providing an amazing buffet for the Halloween party and this year we’re giving the children the opportunity to design the cake, from the filling to the decor. All you need is a blank piece of paper and a creative imagination. Make sure to include your name, age and plot number on your entry and you can post it to Reception, Silver Bay Holiday Village, Pentre Gwyddel, Rhoscolyn, Holyhead, Anglesey LL65 2RZ or email reception@silverbay.co.uk. Entries close on Friday 19th October and the winner will be made and revealed at our Halloween party. Good luck to all taking part!

Also this half term we have Andy from B-Active running a three day kayaking course for anyone aged 10 and over. The course will aim to teach the core skills needed for safe kayaking finished off with a kayak trip along the coastline.

The Deck House news

Plastic straws take up to 200 years to decompose and around 100,000 marine animals die every year from ingesting plastic. That’s why we’re joining the #refusethestraw initiative and will no longer be serving drinks with plastic straws. However, if you still require a straw we will be happy to provide you with a paper one.

The Deck House will also now be serving low fat/low sugar drinks as standard; if you wish to have the full fat alternative, please request this when ordering your drinks.

Join us on Sunday 27th May for another of our famous roast carveries, make sure to book in advance by calling a member of our friendly staff on 01407 862046.

The sun has finally got his hat on, and with the May half-term quickly making its way towards us, we’ve officially launched the Silver Bay Spring Newsletter!

Jam-packed with fun and fantastic activities for all the family, there’s a tangible sense of excitement in the air as we prepare for the return of our lovely homeowners and their loved ones.

So, to make sure your calendar is chock-a-block with recreation and merry-making, take a look below.

Saving The Honey Bees

This year, we’re focusing on helping out a creature that’s been a part of the English lifestyle for as long as we can remember – the honey bee.

What many don’t realise is that this majestic being has a population that is vastly dwindling, so we’ve decided to make Silver Bay a Honey Bee Friendly Park!

Expert beekeeper, Johnathan Garratt, will be visiting over the summer months to hold important educational bee sessions with the children, and they’ll even have the chance to get up close and personal with the fuzzy, buzzy creatures. There will also be lots of bee-themed activities including candle creation with beeswax and a chance to help us build our very own Bee Hotel!

Best of all, we’ll be welcoming 20,000 new residents this summer in the form of our fuzzy friends! The protection and encouragement of the honey bees will be part of our prestigious David Bellamy award this year. Two hives are being installed closely followed by two bee colonies, so make sure you keep an eye out.

Don’t miss it… because It’ll BEE fantastic!

Welcoming Karan, our new pastry chef

We know how much our lodge owners love something sweet, and to help elevate our stunning Deck House menu to the next level, we’ve welcome talented pastry chef, Karan, to the team.

Originally from London, Karan loves baking and making sweets such as honeycomb and marshmallow, and we can’t wait to see what she brings to the table!

We’ve also got a brand new kid’s pudding menu, so keep your eyes peeled for it when you’re next dining with us.

The Chill Out Zone is here!

 Silver Bay Chill Out Zone anglesey north wales

It’s very important to us to listen to our owners’ feedback and act on your wishes – which is why we’re proud to announce that we’ve launched a brand new Chill Out Zone for teens!

Complete with a pool table, television, Wii, wifi, games and comfy bean bags, it’s a space attached to the Deck House where they can kick back and relax – and one where you can rest assured that your children are close by and safe.

The Chill Out Zone also welcomes children under 12 up until 9 pm, as long as they’re supervised by someone in the Deck House.

Easter Fund Raising

You’re a generous lot, and we’re pleased to announce that the Easter raffle and quiz raised £205 pounds for Wales Air Ambulance! Thank you to everyone who donated and took part – and we’d like to give a shout out to Resting Beach Face, who were our quiz champions.

We’d also like to take a moment to highlight the fantastic charity work our team members have done too. Heidi, Will, Toni and Sue all completed a 5k race course and raised £273 for the Stroke Association. Congratulations, everyone!

The Spring Activity Schedule

If you’re a regular Silver Bay holiday-maker, you’ll know that we’re always doing our best to host lots of fun recreational activities for both children and adults. This May, there’s lots on including some brand new activities such as leaf mobiles, nail painting and tattoos, and even frisbee golf.

In the pool, we’ll be hosting a range of pastimes from adult swims to water polo and snorkelling, so make sure you pack your swimming gear!

The studio and gym have an action-packed schedule if you fancy working up a sweat. There’ll be the return of supervised activities and gym, as well as spinning, circuit training, pilates, and metafit.

Finally, our Busy Bayers activities are back with a bang! This May your little ones can experience arts and crafts, paper mache modelling, clay modelling, coasteering, woodland activities, salt dough making and much, much more. We’re even celebrating the return of the fabulous Beach Mudder on Sunday the 28th of May at 3 pm!
