BLT Direct urges campers to be prepared this summer

The summer holidays rang in last week, and children up and down the country will be rejoicing at six weeks of freedom. And as a result, summer holidays will be at the forefront of many families’ minds. Camping has become a much-loved pastime for families of all ages, and is now a viable option for those wanting to get away for a few weeks to other parts of the UK and Europe.

BLT Direct, one of the UK’s premier providers of lighting solutions for over 10 years, is urging families about to head off on a camping holiday to make sure they stock up on lights and lighting equipment to ensure they don’t get left in the dark.

Steven Ellwood, Managing Director of BLT Direct, said, “Camping has seen somewhat of a resurgence over the last five years or so. And as a result, many families are favouring camping over going to hotels for a week or two. Providing the freedom to stay in and explore different areas with ease, they provide a cost-effective alternative to traditional hotel stays.

“However many often forget to take the equipment we often take for granted when staying in a hotel. Torches and portable lights are a necessity for evenings, while decorative lighting – such as fairy and string lights and battery or solar powered lanterns – are ideal for creating a welcoming atmosphere for BBQs outside tents and caravans.”

Keeping families safe and secure, as well as making their getaway feel more homely, portable and solar lights are perfect for camping families of all sizes and ages during the warmer summer months.

Likewise, as the summer heads towards its peak, the festival season is still in full swing. Attracting thousands of campers, festivals are great for going back to basics. Steve, adds: “Torches are imperative for festival goers. Navigating your way through thousands of tents is challenging enough without adding darkness to the mix.”

BLT Direct have a wide range of lighting solutions ideal for taking away for one night or a full two weeks away, as well as traditional and energy saving bulbs available to purchase online.
