Six of the best for Cumbria parks dubbed green pioneers

Six holiday parks owned by Cumbria's Holgates Group have now become Britain's cheerleaders for green tourism, according to international botanist David Bellamy.

He made his comments after the announcement this October that all of the parks had won the 2018 David Bellamy Conservation Award at its top gold level.

The accolades are made annually following an independent audit of park business and their policies for protecting wildlife and safeguarding the natural world.

Professor Bellamy said that the group, including its flagship Silverdale park, were worthy winners of the top honour thanks to their raft of "amazing and imaginative" achievements.
