The Elms celebrates David Bellamy green accolade

Residents and the family owners of a long-established retirement park in Torksey are celebrating the news that their environmental work has scooped a top green accolade.

The Elms, which has more than 300 park homes set in over 60 acres of countryside, was named this week as a winner of the prestigious David Bellamy Conservation Award.

The honour is given to parks where the business owners and residents have made outstanding efforts to protect and enhance the natural environment.

According to world-famous botanist Professor Bellamy, The Elms is creating a “green blueprint” of how to run a park which is as welcoming to flora and fauna as it is to homeowners.

The park was established just over 30 years ago by former farmer John Kinch, now aged 83, who still plays an active part in its day-to-day management.

Owls and other bird species are additionally encouraged by the siting of nesting boxes in the grounds, and The Elms has also created wildflower areas where many different varieties flourish.

Many park residents have also helped make The Elms a natural paradise by sustaining wildlife areas in their gardens which provide shelter, habitats and feeding resources for birds and animals.

Ann Kinch, from the team at The Elms, said that everyone at the park was thrilled with the news that it had scooped the David Bellamy Conservation Award:

“The park has been a haven for wildlife for over half a century, and it’s this sense of being surrounded by nature which gives The Elms its very special character,” said Ann.

“Everybody plays a part in our conservation work, and it’s wonderful to be able to help preserve its very special character with the support and inspiration of David Bellamy,” she added.
