Kingfisher Caravan Park wins top award for seventh year

December 20, 2019

East Lindsey District Council's Kingfisher Caravan Park has once again secured the Gold David Bellamy Conservation Award, marking the seventh consecutive year the Park has achieved the accolade.

The David Bellamy Conservation Award is one of the longest running green tourism awards in the UK and champions holiday parks that are working to protect and enhance Britain's natural environment.

The Park, which is located on Sea Lane, Ingoldmells, has been assessed by the scheme's team of local wildlife experts and has been scored in across a range of criteria in three key areas: Good Neighbourliness, Sustainability and Ecological Management.

The Park team were praised for their work in each area, with the assessor specifically commending the excellent links between the Park and the local community, the recruitment of a Park Development Manager and the Park's longer term plans.

The scheme also awards Parks a number of badges for work on specific areas and this year Kingfisher successfully secured three of those badges: Woodland Habitat, Wildflower Habitat and Hedgerow Habitat.

Kingfisher Park Development Manager, Mickey Reeson, said: "We're delighted to have secured the Gold David Bellamy Conservation Award once more. We take great pride in the work we do and the national recognition we receive through this Award is a testament to our whole team."

Portfolio Holder for Finance, Councillor Richard Fry, added: "We were saddened to hear of the passing of David Bellamy, who founded these Awards. His tireless work in establishing these conservation awards will ensure his legacy lives on and I'd like to pass on my condolences to his family."
