Beverley Holidays Takes The Honey Bee Pledge
Beverley Holidays are on a mission to save the great British bee by taking part in David Bellamy’s Honey Bee Friendly Park Project.
Our Paignton-based holiday parks have pledged their support to safeguarding Britain’s bee in response to recent studies which reveal that bee numbers are in dramatic decline.
In a bid to ensure the safeguarding of one of our most important pollinators, David Bellamy teamed up with the British Beekeepers Association to form the Honey Bee Project.
Beverley Holidays, who are Gold David Bellamy Award winners, have introduced a number of bee-friendly measures since taking the pledge.
As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainable issues, both parks have seen the introduction of Bee B&Bs which provide the perfect retreat for visiting winged friends.
Furthermore, our holiday park’s wealth of wildlife has also been enhanced with even more pollen-rich plants such as lavender and honeysuckle, both of which are loved by bees.
Beverley Holidays Marketing Director, Claire Jeavons, said: “It’s great to be involved in the David Bellamy Honey Bee Project, and we very much hope that the bee-friendly plans we’ve put in place will help combat the decline in this vital countryside species.
“Our brand new Bee B&Bs have certainly caught the attention of our guests and all the lovely pollen-rich plants our Grounds Team have been busy planting have also gone down a treat. We’ve got lots more bee-friendly plans up our sleeves so watch this space!”
Offering memorable holidays in the heart of the English Riviera, Beverley Holidays pride themselves on their sustainably credentials.
As well as pledging support for the Honey Bee Project, the holiday parks also boast numerous bird and bat boxes, Nature Trails and even a Hedgehog Hotel.
