BACK OF BEYOND SEE’S NEW GUESTS FLY IN
Over a quarter of a million honey bees have helped a New Forest couple’s camping and caravan park to wing its way to a top environmental award.
Tranquil Parks Back of Beyond touring park near Ringwood has been praised by botanist David Bellamy for its “outstanding efforts” to provide a safe haven for the beleaguered bee.
Business owners Martin and Vicky Bowrey have installed eight hives on their 30-acre park to try and help stem the sharp national decline in bee numbers.
These and other wildlife-friendly initiatives have now earned the couple the prestigious David Bellamy Conservation Award and its top gold level for the third year in succession.
