White Acres Holiday Park in Cornwall has been granted an Award of Special Distinction by David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme. This is in addition to the gold award the park holds for their dedication to good environmental practice and well-kept natural settings.
The Parkdean Holidays park achieved the Award of Special Distinction, created for 2009, by demonstrating innovation and commitment to engaging young people’s interest in food and its source, through cookery and the park’s own produce. White Acres is amongst a small number of parks to receive the award in its first year.
In light of increasing childhood obesity figures and the movement to reduce our carbon foot print and save money, the new award recognises the holiday park’s efforts in working towards encouraging children to eat their 5 a day by involving them in fun interactive activities, learning about growing fruit and vegetables through to cooking their own meals.
David Bellamy is delighted with the conservation work White Acres Holiday Park is doing on park and commented: "Anything that gets kids in touch with nature and encourages them to get their hands mucky gets my vote. White Acres is promoting real hands-on natural history, and healthy eating, and for that I applaud them."
Parkdean Holidays have 24 award winning holiday parks in beach and country locations throughout the UK, 23 of which hold David Bellamy Conservation Awards.
