It’s gold again!

newsFor the seventh year in succession, a holiday park and marina in Derbyshire, Mercia Marina, has won a gold award in the David Bellamy Conservation Awards, by giving wildlife the same VIP treatment as its visitors.

There was an extra honour for Mercia when Professor Bellamy declared it a ‘Honey Bee Friendly’ park, as part of his new initiative to help protect the threatened insects. He praised especially its wildflower hedgerows, where high nectarbearing blooms provide valuable foraging for honey bees as well as butterflies and other pollinators.

The marina’s commitment to running a business based on forward-looking sustainability policies marks it out as a true green champion, said David Bellamy, who enthused: ‘Winning seven golds in as many years is a fantastic achievement for Mercia Marina.’
