Our 2023 David Bellamy Blooming Marvellous Pledge for Nature

Our 2023 David Bellamy Blooming Marvellous Pledge for Nature

The David Bellamy Blooming Marvellous Pledge for Nature launched back in 2021 and is a great way for holiday parks to show off their green credentials. 

Last year we achieved our “Pollinator Patch” badge.  This year we have taken on the “Home Sweet Home” challenge where we plan to install throughout the park bird boxes; bat boxes; more bug and bee hotels; feeding stations for birds and squirrels; hedgehog houses; and insect stacks to help animals across our park thrive and provide an area of shelter.

So many of you, very kindly, got involved with our nature pledge last year and, if anyone would like to join in with our mission this year, there are plenty of opportunities to do so:

Build your Own Bug Hotel or Insect Stack

Attached is a handy little leaflet with information on how you can make your very own Bug Hotel and Insect Stack – it is easier than you think! For making your insect stack, all you will need is some sticks and twigs and some string! A great, fun activity for our young Sandgreener’s to get involved in!

Bird Feeding Stations

If you fancy turning your hand to make your own bird feeding station at Sandgreen, there is a leaflet attached with easy-to-follow instructions on how to make a “Bird Food Cake” or a recycled bird feeder. Another great activity for the kids!

Please do send us photographs of your masterpieces once done!

Sponsor your very own Bird or Bat Box

We have made our own bird boxes and bat boxes and will be placing these throughout the park. If you would like to sponsor a bird or bat box at Sandgreen – please let us know. You can sponsor a box for £15 and you will get your name and pitch number engraved on a plaque on the box.

We will keep you updated on our Pledge for Nature progress throughout the year.
