CORONAVIRUS - COVID19
While Park Home communities are generally well placed to see out the lockdown during the pandemic we urge all our readers to follow Scottish Government guidelines to keep us all safe. See news story here
HISTORY OF PANDEMIC
"The most severe pandemic in history was the Spanish Flu of 1918. It lasted 2 years, in 3 waves of contamination with 500 million people infected and totaling 50 million deaths.
Most of the deaths occurred during the 2nd wave of contamination.The population tolerated quarantine and social distancing measures so badly that, when the first decontainment took place, the population began to rejoice in the streets, abandoning all precautions.
In the weeks that followed, the second wave of contamination arrived, with tens of millions of deaths. "
It is often said that history repeats itself. Let us not let history repeat itself. Let's be disciplined.
DO YOU LIVE IN A RESIDENTIAL PARK HOME OR LODGE IN SCOTLAND?
IMPROVE YOUR PARK HOME LIFE EXPERIENCE WITH A RESIDENTS ASSOCIATION
The best park home sites in Scotland are those where the site owner(s) and the residents work together for the common good
Park home residents have the legal right to form associations and to be consulted by site owners on issues affecting their park; throughout Scotland, park home residents are now forming residents associations as they realise there is strength in numbers and opportunitites to improve their park home experience, life style and community.
The Scottish Confederation of Park Homes Residents Associations (SCOPHRA) is intended to provide an umbrella organisation for existing and embryo Park Home Residents Associations in Scotland with the sole aim of supporting their needs and aspirations under the one banner, giving strength in numbers to individual associations. We are also happy to provide information and advice to individuals or groups of residents who wish to join together to help their Park Community and residents work in harmony for mutual benefit. Associations are a force for community. they combat loneliness by organising outings and social events, some even receive financial support from their local council to assist this work but most of all they look after YOUR interests.
Coming together as an Association will ensure that YOUR interests are protected, that your site owners meet their obligations and that your local licensing authority is aware of any worries or issues you may have about the running of your park.
SCOPHRA's experts are among the most knowledgable people in Scotland on Park Homes matters and the law affecting park home residents. SCOPHRA is now the Scottish Government's go-to body on matters affecting the park home community and the SCOPHRA Executive meets regularly with officials of the Scottish Government Housing Minister's department.
If you are a residents association now and would like to join us or are looking to form a new association, contact SCOPHRA at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Use this website to send us your queries or questions and we will be happy to guide you!
