53 | Luxlife Magazine has a mutually beneficial relationship with the people in the local area – and that will always be important to the running of the business. “We work with local businesses at the grass-roots level to support the Woolacombe community, and secure excellent offers and primary service for our guests. Currently some of our partners include Coastal Cooks, Woolacombe Surf Centre, and Koola dogz. In 2022 Byron Woolacombe Holiday Lets have partnered with Plastic Free North Devon and invested in re-tasked litter pickers from Waterhaul. Our Retask the Mask litter pickers are made in the UK, with the plastic components made from 100% recycled PPE sourced from the NHS in a plight to reduce waste products. Our litter pickers are available to sign out from the facilities reception between 9-5pm every day! We send information to guests on how to be a plastic free support and send dates on the many beaches or park cleans that are regularly held. “ And so, we come to the future of the company. By all regards, 2023 looks to be, in Olivia’s words, “an interesting year” for Byron Woolacombe Holidays as it looks to grow and enhance its customer service efforts. “We are excited to further develop and grow our business activities.
