Silver Bay Win Prestigious Award

We are thrilled to reveal we won the People Development award for the way in which we have developed our team over the past three years.

We had a wonderful evening filled with praise and celebration of all the companies based in North Wales who provide services, employment, and pride to the region. We want to express our congratulations to all the nominees including Surf Snowdonia who tipped us for the trophy for the Tourism, Leisure and Retail Business of the Year award, together with Sean Taylor from Zip World who picked up the business leader of the year, thoroughly deserved.

 

We are incredibly proud of the Silver Bay Holiday Village team and the impeccable service that is provided on a day-to-day basis. As much as we’re proud of the facilities and activities we provide to all our customers, we know the award winning would not be possible without the motivation, dedication and customer-focused mindset of all the Silver Bay staff.

Jamie Hughes, General Manager commented ‘winning this award really is a testament to the team effort that has enabled Silver Bay to become a truly 5-star owner experience’.

We strive to give all our customers and employees a second-to-none experience, we’re proud of everything we have and will continue to achieve. Here’s to many more incredible experiences, awards won and memories.

Silver Bay Holiday Village wins GOLD in the David Bellamy Awards 2016! Our lodge owners may have noticed a few changes around our luxury holiday park lately, and that’s because we’ve been striving to be recognised for the prestigious David Bellamy award!

The David Bellamy Awards are offered to holiday parks across the country that protect and enhance their beautiful natural environment – and that’s precisely what we’ve been aiming for here on Anglesey.

We’ve been planting a diverse mix of native trees, hedging, wildflowers and traditional Welsh Fruit Trees around our park.

However, that’s not all. We’ve also created a native wildflower meadow for residents to enjoy, and we’re in the process of setting up a magnificent edible garden containing soft fruit and kitchen herbs. Our main aim, of course, has been to protect and build upon our beautiful natural scenery on the park, and the determination of our team has been rewarded and we couldn’t be happier.

The David Bellamy Awards are judged by a team of local wildlife experts who ensure that holiday parks are meeting the following criteria:

  • “Manage their land as a haven for wildlife

  • Reduce their use of energy, water and other resources

  • Reduce, reuse and recycle the waste they produce

  • Support their local communities.”

Commendations are split into three categories, bronze, silver and gold. We’re humbled to have achieved the most prestigious award ‘Gold’ for our contribution!

David Bellamy Awards have been running throughout the UK since 1997. They are one of the longest running green awards in the country, and we’re honoured to have received such prestigious recognition.

What’s been your favourite new addition to the site? Are you happier with a greener holiday village? Let us know your thoughts on Twitter or Facebook.

Any questions or queries about the award or our holiday park in general? Simply give us a call on 01407 860 860 to speak to reception. Our friendly team will be more than happy to offer any assistance.

  • Cable Bay

  • Sandy Beach

  • Rhoscolyn
