Club Sites Achieve Gold Levels of Excellence

The Camping and Caravanning Club has continued to impress in the David Bellamy Conservation Awards, achieving four gold rosettes for 2011.

Ashbourne, Corfe Castle, Charmouth and Folkestone Camping and Caravanning Club Sites were awarded gold levels of excellence after they demonstrated the exceptional lengths they have gone to, to protect and enhance the natural environment.

And the Club continued to make a positive impression on the David Bellamy assessors as its Lauder Club Site was awarded a commendable silver rosette.

Barnard Castle and Dunbar Club Sites achieved bronze levels of excellence.

The sites that took part in the scheme were regularly assessed by a team of local wildlife experts.

Bob Hill, the Club’s Sites Director, said: “It’s important for the Club to play its part in protecting the British countryside and it’s encouraging to receive such recognition.

“As we continue to expand and develop our site network, conservation is very much at the forefront of our minds and we will endeavour to continue to practise and promote green tourism.

“We would like to congratulate our Franchisees, Holiday Site Managers and Assistants for their efforts in helping to provide environmental excellence.”

David Bellamy Conservation Awards are given to those sites that have shown the steps they have taken to; support their local community, manage their land as a haven for wildlife, lessen their use of energy, water and other resources and reduce, reuse and recycle the waste they produce.

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.
