    Ruda awarded a prestigious green tourism award

    The awardWe are pleased to announce that Ruda Holiday Park in Devon, has received the high acclaim of a Special Distinction Award in the 2012/13 David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme.

    This prestigious green tourism award is given to only a small number of parks in the UK each year to highlight ‘best practice’ in the industry and encourage fellow holiday providers to follow their lead.

    Ruda has been commended for its hard work and innovative thinking in relation to conserving the environment. A number of factors on park were cited as contributing to its success including: the 22 nesting boxes which have been installed across the park (and the 74 chicks that have hatched in them); the recycling of plastics, glass and paper, the wildlife walks such as rockpool rambles and toad watch that are organised regularly and the coastal path which has been stabilised with the use of Christmas trees.

    The beautiful setting at RudaSteve Harper-Smith, General Manager at Ruda Holiday Park, said: “Conserving the environment is of utmost importance to us and it’s an honour to have the hard work of the team recognised. Our customers also seem to enjoy the wildlife activities we organise so we plan to continue building on our accomplishments for the enjoyment of staff and holidaymakers alike.”

    An assessor who visited the park also commented on how those who worked at Ruda had ‘embraced the concept of an environmental walk’ and that they had ‘carried out exemplary work along its length’.

    The David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme is one of the longest-running green tourism awards in the UK and all of our holiday parks are regularly assessed by the scheme’s team of local wildlife experts.
