Four Holiday Parks Win Gold David Bellamy Conservation Awards
It is our pleasure to announce that Tolroy Manor Holiday Park, St Ives Holiday Village, Widemouth Bay Caravan Park and Killigarth Manor Holiday Park in Cornwall have all been awarded the Gold David Bellamy Conservation Award.
The holiday parks are assessed and judged on the steps they are taking to manage their land as a haven for wildlife, reduce their use of energy and water, reduce, reuse and recycle waste and support their local community.
We are delighted to have been awarded with these prestigious accolades with Killigarth Manor and St Ives jumping from Silver to Gold awards. Both Cornwall parks have also been awarded the 'Woodlands' badge in the 5 Habitats in 5 Years Scheme and St Ives has received the 'Honey Bee Friendly' status.
Widemouth Bay have kept hold of their Gold award for another year and have also received the special 'Woodlands' commendation award alongside the 'Honeybee Friendly' status.
Tolroy Manor have retained the Gold David Bellamy status for the third time, the Honey Bee Friendly award and the 2019 5-in-5 'Woodlands' habitat badge. In addition to these awards, the Hayle holiday park is also one of the first recipients to receive the new 'Going Green Together' badge. The aim of the new badge is to encourage people who live on or visit a park regularly to go green and have fun at the same time. All of the staff at Tolroy Manor have been working extremely hard to reduce their carbon footprint, protect and enhance Cornwall's wildlife, support local charities and projects and to promote environmental awareness to guests and staff.
All four Cornwall holiday parks have been named by Professor David Bellamy as being among the greenest places in Britain for families to enjoy a holiday. Well done and congratulations to everyone involved!
