A DALES leisure park is set to get a £75,000 refurbishment.

Verdant Leisure has announced the plans for a new-look bar and restaurant at Heather View Leisure Park, near Stanhope.

The renovation is due to be completed by October 19, with the facilities remaining open for much of the work.

The refurbishment of the Crazy Bear restaurant will see the décor updated throughout with new lighting, additional seating and new flooring and carpets.

The accessibility ramp will be moved for better convenience for disabled guests and an internal baluster will be installed for the safety of younger customers.

The final step of the renovation will involve renaming the bar and restaurant. Verdant Leisure encouraged all employees, guests and members of the local area to get involved and send in their suggestions for the new facilities.

The holiday operator has created a shortlist and has now asked holiday home owners and guests to vote on them. To track the progress visit facebook.com/heatherviewpark
