Only WakePark in Cumbria is at Port Haverigg


Cumbria’s very first and only WakePark has just opened its doors! Guess where?! Yes, at our stunning Port Haverigg Marina Village Holiday Park! Where else?!

Port Haverigg Watersports was taken by storm by ex-competition wakeboarder Nicola Cuthbert and husband James, owner of Abicool UK, in partnership with Lee Warren and partner Leanne Swales, who have been coaching and organising world-class events and competitions for the past 15 years.

The facilities on site were massively updated with the installation of a WakeStation – a two tower cable pulley system which enables the wakeboarders to be towed up and down without the use of a boat, making your beginner lessons much easier – and a WakePark, which is very similar to a skateboard park, with kickers and rails for progressing riders. Our experts told this magazine that kiteboarders find it particularly useful as a learning tool for board control along with learning tricks when the weather conditions are not great for kiteboarding. On the other hand, snowboarders enjoy its rail park side to practice their skills throughout the summer.

Cumbria’s first and brand new WakePark is also one of only a few places in the UK that run both boat and cable boat towed sports such as wakeboarding, waterskiing, wakeskating, kneeboarding, banana, ringo and boat rides.

Port Haverigg Watersports is open every day, all year round, and it is set to start making some waves!

This residential park is located off Lyne Lane, in the semi-rural village of Lyne, and the larger centres of both Chertsey and Virginia Water are just less than 3 miles away – there you will find a wide range of retail and service outlets, together with leisure and many other facilities, as well as railways stations with regular trains into London Waterloo and also towards Reading and Wokingham.

In Chertsey, one of the oldest market towns in England, you can also visit the historic royal Hampton Court Palace, the famous 7 ¼ in gauge miniature Great Cockcrow Railway or delight yourself at the London Bus Museum. The town is also home to the Chertsey Cricket Club, one of England’s oldest and most influential cricket clubs which, away from the field, also offers a vibrant social membership and doubles as one of the most picturesque beer gardens in the county during the summer.

The park occupies a very prime residential location, being close to the Wentworth estate, Foxhill Golf Club and other similar complexes that contribute towards this area’s recognition as one of the most exclusives within the county. Central London is within approximately 25 miles of the park, Heathrow Airport is 16 miles away and Gatwick Airport is also easily accessible.

The park itself is laid out within a quiet and beautiful setting. Most of the homes have their own private garden areas and are surrounded by gorgeous mature trees and evergreen hedges, giving to the residents that perfect feeling of peace and tranquility.

“The best form of revenge is Happiness”

Alison Purple photo


‘Angel’ Alison Ward, 51, is an author, inspirational mentor… and also a smiler, as she says. Despite living on the Worcestershire/Herefordshire border, her voice reaches everywhere throughout her website and blog. Author of 3 books – “Awarded by Angels”, “Bringing You Back To You” and “Get That Friday Feeling” – she has been mentoring people over the last 18 years, ever since the event that has changed her life: a horrific knife attack that nearly killed her but that helped her see what she calls her “life purpose”.

Wyldecrest Parks editorial team interviewed the author but, above all, the woman behind the books and the blog – the Alison Ward who loves nothing more than spending time with her husband and two boys, walking their red fox laborador Beano and enjoying the odd glass or two of Champagne, or Angel Juice as she calls it!


When and why have you started writing your blog and website?

I have been writing since 2010 and only started blogging last year when I took up the 30 day blog challenge, loved it and completed it first time round.


What do you usually write about and what do you like to write about the most?

I write a lot about life issues that cause anxiety, I am known as the anxiety mentor by many of my mentoring clients. I write about positive courses of action to take, tips and techniques that work to bring happiness, peace and balance in our lives. I like to talk of our purpose and that without it we can become lost souls – anything that raises a personal interest or passion within me really. I love to inspire others and was actually recognised with The Most Inspiring Person Award 2015 by Health & Happiness Magazine.


Can you tell us a bit more about the event that has changed your life?

The ‘Awakening’ was a horrific knife attack from a former partner. After attacking me in front of our 2 year old son, he was later found in a car full of carbon monoxide, thankfully the police got there in time to release my boy and save his life. Following the ‘Awakening’, I was in a deep tortuous state with PTSD (post-traumatic stress disorder). No one could help me so I realised ‘the best form of revenge is happiness’. I then discovered lots of self-help techniques that I practiced to make me well again and very happy. I have been blessed to share these tools with thousands of people from around the world in my mentoring business and through my three books.


You have a really inspirational life story. When have you realised that your life and the events you’ve been through could capacitate you to help others?

People noticed how well I became, how happy and with peace of mind. They commented on my positivity and how I am able to change a negative situation into a positive. I call the ‘Awakening’, ‘the beautiful gift in an ugly box’. People say they feel so much better in my company – I inspire and give hope that there is always light.


How do you recall the moment when you’ve started writing and blogging?

I started writing my first book in 2010 by being nagged by my clients to share my story. It took me 7 years (2003 was the first suggestion to write it) to finally agree to sit down and write “Awarded By Angels” first edition and only six weeks to complete it. “Bringing You Back To You”, on the other side, only took me four weeks to complete. With blogging, that was different: I love blogging but only started that last year when my agent suggested the 30 day blogging challenge. I loved it, my creative juices flow and I will continue to blog once a week at least. I love writing; it feels so very natural to me.


How do imagine yourself in 30 years’ time?

In thirty years’ time, I will be drinking a glass of wine at the ripe old age of 81, counting my blessings and looking back on my life knowing I’ve made a difference. I will have no regrets, just a smile and a face that shows I’ve lived, loved and inspired. I will be in awe of my life with my husband Wayne and our gorgeous boys Sam and James and our grandchildren who continue to dare to dream.

Success at 60 plus

Jane 60plus

And that’s it! The time has finally come! We’re unveiling some of the most desired secrets on how to be successful…after 60!

Success at Sixty + : 7 swift stops to your Superlife” dares you to banish limiting beliefs, to dream, to live well and large – to score all your goals as a Superlifer. Our editorial team went to meet the woman behind the book.


Nurse, complementary therapist and author, Jane Aireton, 67, always lived her life in 3D Technicolor and passionately wanted to empower and inspire, she says. And now she’s precisely doing that, writing to empower and inspire the 60+ age group.

“All my life I have written for myself and now I have the opportunity to share my thoughts with others”, she explains. “For the last 15 years I’ve been a full time carer for my elderly relatives. If I had had the chance to read “Success at 60 Plus” when I was a carer it would have made a huge difference to me. I could have looked beyond my situation instead of getting bogged down by it”.

In her book, success is all about being happy and fulfilled. “It is a self-help work book or, as I would like to define it, a superlifer log to success”, Jane states.

She now has not only her own book, but also her very own blog. Straight from the Channel Island of Alderney to the rest of the world! And she absolutely loves it, she guarantees. Amongst many other things, Jane blogs about some people or some things that have inspired her in a certain way. “It could be an animal sanctuary, dolphins, a couple who get married in their eighties or an elite runner from New Zealand…there’s so much inspiration out there if you start to look for it”, she guarantees.

Jane has no doubt that these new ventures have changed her life. “For me, writing a book, having a website, blogging, facebooking and twittering have opened up a huge new world of lovely people. To live on a tiny island is awesome but to connect with other like-minded people all over the world has completely changed my life”.

But…what does Success at 60 plus really mean, after all? (We’re all wondering that right?!). “Success at 60 plus is about rebranding and achieving the very best in our age group. We’re not middle aged, we’re not old, we are not grannies or greys or pensioners or even new 40’s (and we’re definitely not recycled!) – we are Superlifers in our own right”, Jane states. And there’s not much more left to say. Jane’s definition of success is all about rediscovering your talents, achieving your potential, doing what you do best and not dancing to someone else’s tune.

Her piece of advice for all of you? (Yes, we haven’t forgotten that bit either!) “Read my book, follow my blog and live your life to the full!”

Visit so you do not miss out on any of Jane’s ventures and inspirational stories!
