Happy Memories

With over 100 years experience there are a lot of tales to be told.

Our latest tale comes from Jane Connell whose parents introduced her to HF Holidays back in 1957.

Read on for her, and her families, tale from the boot room.

“I just have a lovely feeling inside today!

My parents always took me on HF Holidays’ breaks  (they were shareholding members number 4 and 5! If they were still alive they would be 104 and 96).

We were regular guests on various family holidays but after I got married we moved on to walking in the mountains.

I’ve a lot of happy memories. My husband and I (now 63 and 57) took our children (now 24 and 30) on fantastic holidays as three generations.

All three generations visited Freshwater Bay as where else do you take an 81 year old when you’ve got young children? Such fun was had.

We also took five children to Malhamdale.

We did some amazing things and made some wonderful friends with HF Holidays.

I recently read a Facebook post from my son (he does like food!)…

“Hey hey, recognise this lunch? They still have tracker bars!!Packed lunch

These are the lovely replies from his family and friends:

Laura Parry

Thank you for fantastic holidays and lovely memories!
