Cheddar Club Site Goes Green

Environmentally aware campers can now enjoy innovative eco-friendly facilities at the Cheddar Camping and Caravanning Club Site in Somerset.

Franchisees, Alan and Kate Sefton, have invested around £80,000 into developing a new facilities block to create an environmentally friendly haven for campers.

The new revolutionary facilities include: state of the art showers which mix air with water to reduce energy consumption, waterless urinals that break-down waste using bio-friendly products plus a ventilation system which removes 80 percent of heat from extracted air, returns it to the washrooms and removes excess humidity.

Alan was enthusiastic about the Site’s latest developments. He said: “We are committed to providing an eco-friendly setting to help contribute towards the preservation of our planet.

“Our green facilities have been designed to the highest standard, ensuring all our campers have an enjoyable stay."

The Club has a number of award-winning sites including, Eskdale, Teversal and Gullivers Milton Keynes, that have all developed a variety of ecological facilities.

As a further reflection of The Club’s commitment to preserving the environment, 56 of its Club Sites have been awarded David Bellamy Gold Awards.

The Sites were recognised after the Holiday Site Managers, Assistants and franchisees highlighted to assessors the great lengths that they undertake to help protect and enhance Britain’s natural environment.

The David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme is one of the longest running green tourism awards in the UK, and is a joint partnership between the Conservation Foundation and the British Holiday & Homes Parks Association.
