There will be brand new developments at Vauxhall with 14 new caravans and a full refurbishment of the food and beverage court, which will bring Papa Johns and Thunderbird Fried Chicken to the park.
Six new caravans will also be added at Manor Park and wif-fi is to be installed at all resorts.
In addition, 80 upgraded caravans are being introduced to replace the company's Norfolk fleet and 48 apartments at Vauxhall have already been refurbished.
