Environment & Conservation at Forest Glade

Holiday Park Conservation

Here at Forest Glade our aim is to preserve the environment around us so that it can be enjoyed by future generations. We are very proud to hold a Gold David Bellamy conservation award.

Environmental and Conservation Policy

Information on our Holiday Park Conservation and Environmental Policy can be found below:

  • We are committed to reducing the amount of waste sent to landfill.  We ask our guests to recycle as much of their rubbish as they can, just like they do at home.
  • We currently recycle glass, plastic, drinks cans, batteries, newspapers and magazines and cardboard.
  • We use low energy light bulbs wherever possible and solar panels installed on the roof of the main house and the games room help us generate some of the electricity that we use on the park.
  • Where we can we use low-level lighting so that light pollution doesn’t spoil the beautiful views of the night sky that can be seen from the park, especially from the Five Acre Field.
Wildlife at Forest Glade

David Bellamy Conservation Award

Forest Glade holds a Gold David Bellamy Conservation Award.  This is one of the longest running green tourism awards in the UK.  The parks that participate in the scheme undergo regular assessment by the scheme’s team of local wildlife experts.  The assessors look at the step’s parks are taking to:

  • Manage their land as a haven for wildlife
  • Reduce their use of energy, water and other resources
  • Reduce, reuse and recycle the waste they produce
  • Support their local communities

David Bellamy uses the assessors’ reports (and any comments received from members of the public) to make his awards each year.  Postage paid feedback forms are available from Reception if you would like to make any comments.
