Anti-litter campaigns praise holiday park staff

The battle to rid Dorset of litter got a boost recently when the Litter Free Coast and Sea Dorset campaigns awarded staff from a local holiday park for their anti-litter efforts.

Staff from the Highlands End Holiday Park in Bridport, Dorset won an award for helping to make their local beaches more attractive for visitors. The anti-litter campaigns audited the park to see how they reduce litter, minimise wastage and discourage the use of single-use plastics.

Caroline Richards, project support officer for the Litter Free Coast and Sea campaign congratulated the Highlands End Holiday Park team. Martin Cox, from the holiday park said:

“Minimising waste is an important part of our sustainability policies, and it's not just about reducing the environmental footprint of our business, important though that is.

 

“It's also about ensuring that our holiday guests can enjoy clean beaches on which to have fun and relax, and safe seas in which to swim or take part in water sports.”

It’s not the first environmental award the park has won. Highlands End Holiday Park has long-held the gold level of the annual David Bellamy Conservation Award, its top level.

Martin’s business, West Dorset Leisure Holidays, raises money for the Jurassic Coast Trust too, through a ‘small, optional levy’ on bookings. This June, the company handed over close to £8,200 to the trust, collected over 12 months.
