A nature trail, designed and developed by schoolchildren, has helped an award winning business to scoop yet another accolade.

Rawcliffe Hall Country Club and Caravan Park was presented with a special distinction award from the David Bellamy Conservation Scheme.

The honour was given for the development of a nature trail in the park at Wyreside, Out Rawcliffe by pupils from St Michael’s on Wyre CE Primary School, which has Eco School status.

The trail took several months to create, with children researching all the different forms of wildlife which could be found at the park. They then developed a series of signs pointing out where visitors could find the wildlife, along with a fun quiz.

Kim Jenkinson, general manager at Rawcliffe Hall, said: “We have been working closely with local primary schools since 2004. By inviting children on to the park, the valuable wildlife is shared for educational purposes in a safe and welcoming environment.

“The nature trail has proved extremely popular with our customers, families and guests. We always look forward to the children’s visits and are intrigued as to what they are doing next.”
