Family-owned Plassey Holiday Park in Wrexham recently won the 2019 David Bellamy Conservation Award for their wildlife-friendly business.

The park gained the gold level of the award, the highest level, for the “wonderland for wildlife” created by Plassey director John Brookshaw and his wife, Sarah.

John was quick to pass on the praise for their success to his hard-working ground team.

“Many of our holiday guests choose Plassey because of its gorgeous natural setting, and we're delighted that our work is being supported by someone like David Bellamy,” added John.

The park has substantial areas of wild flowers which provide plenty of food for bees, butterflies and other pollinators. Plassey Holiday Park also has ‘shielded illumination’ to make it easier for visitors to see the night sky. The David Bellamy team praised the park for their lighting and for creating so many places for wildlife to live in the park.

Ponds for waterfowl, visiting birds and dragonflies also featured on the list of praise from the judges. And, the judges commended Plassey Holiday Park for protecting honey bees, planting new hedgerows, planting wildflowers and for the care of its woodland.

Plassey Holiday Park caters for campers, caravanners, motorhome owners and visitors who want to stay in a holiday lodge.
