A north Norfolk holiday park has been received an award from conservationist David Bellamy in recognition of its commitment to sustainable tourism.
Kelling Heath Holiday Park, which is marking its 25th anniversary, was one of only 14 holiday parks in the UK, and the only one in the east of England, to be selected for a special distinction honour to mark a particular achieve-ment in the David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award.
Judges from the British Holiday and Home Parks Association were impressed with its �180,000 environmentally-friendly shower block, which has saved 119,600 litres of water and prevented 5,739kg of CO2 being released into the atmosphere, through using rainwater harvesting and solar panels to provide electricity and hot water.
Prof Bellamy said the award recognised the innovative environmental work.
General manager Mark Durrant said it was a fantastic pat on the back to park staff, who had worked hard to ensure guests combined an unbeatable holiday with preserving a glorious environment.
