The Camping and Caravanning Club (CCC) has achieved three gold rosettes in the David Bellamy Conservation Awards.

Sites at Corfe Castle in Dorset, Delamere Forest in Cheshire and Oban in Scotland were recognised for the exceptional lengths they had gone to, to protect and enhance the natural environment.

Assessor, Tom Pridmore, commenting of Delamere's success, said: "The commitment to environmental excellence at Delamere Forest is evident on arrival with the park obviously an integral part of the adjacent forest park."

He added that the managers of the site are constantly striving to develop and improve the park in harmony with nature.

David Bellamy praised the sites for their commitment to Britain's environment and wildlife especially in this the International Year of Biodiversity.

CCC sites director, Bob Hill, said that the club will continue to promote eco-friendly developments and improvements to all of its sites.

The David Bellamy Conservation Awards scheme is one of the longest running green tourism awards in the UK.
