Our Policy here at St Lawrence Holiday Park is to take positive and active steps in responding to the conservation needs of the Park and its surrounding area; whilst at the same time maintaining the balance with business requirements of a clean and well-tended, visually-aesthetic environment for you to enjoy during your stay with us, both for now and in future years.
Wherever possible, with the active collaboration of our neighbours, we shall purposefully maintain natural bankings, and other areas, to be supportive environments for all forms of local plants, animals, birds and insects.
Your Part: - You are of course welcome to enjoy the natural environment within and around the Park, and we ask you to work with us in partnership and to help us maintain our environment during your stay.

2. Watering small trees, shrubs & plants near your pitch with cool grey water from your caravan

4. Observing and noting anything to help prevent anyone damaging the park environment.
5. Taking any necessary steps to help prevent anyone damaging the park environment.
