Park History & The Team

History of The Park

The tallest gentleman in the back row of this family wedding portrait (1908) is 'Great-Uncle Johnny'. He purchased Sunningcrest in 1949.

Johnny's Sister, Lydia (the shortest lady in the back row) had one Daughter, Dorothy Lodge, and she purchased Sunningcrest from her Uncle in 1952.

Sunningcrest is currently owned and operated by Cedric and Sheila Lodge and their son and wife, Jake and Sue Lodge, who together purchased Sunningcrest from Dorothy in 1998.
