David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award

The Orchards Park has won another year of the David Bellamy Gold Conservation Award, making 18 consecutive years.

The Park is independently visited and assessed each year to establish whether it is to be awarded Gold. It is the consistent efforts of everyone on the park that helps achieve the award through gardens, comments and pictures.

David Bellamy commented

“Let me take this opportunity to thank you and your team for all the hard work you have put in to make your park a real haven for wildlife and to go the extra mile to ensure that it is sustainable and a good neighbour to the local community.

I am delighted that your residents thoroughly enjoyed making bird boxes and I look forward to hearing how successful they are! Of all the wonderful projects you’ve put in place, I am particularly impressed by your wildflower banks; they sound amazing.

Let me finish by saying “congratulations” once again on your achievement”
