Managing Director Mark Partington said: “At Ribby, we are constantly reinvesting profits back into the business with the aim of improving the holiday experience year on year.

“Last year a significant investment was made in refurbishing our accommodation, the health club and the opening of two new eateries.

“For 2016 we are really excited about our new addition ‘Wild Discovery’, an interactive animal experience and a new kids club which is also being launched later this year for our holiday guests.

“I do believe however Ribby Hall Village’s greatest achievement is that of the team, and the pride that all employees take in the development and maintenance of our five-star holiday Village.”
