TV celeb to meet locals at holiday park’s ‘green’ launch

LOCAL people, holidaymakers and holiday home owners will be able to meet bubbly TV celebrity Anna Ryder Richardson - a passionate campaigner on behalf of her own sustainable and conservation-led zoo.

Haven Holiday Homes has recently unveiled the industry's greenest ever holiday home with the support of Anna, former star of Changing Rooms and I'm a Celebrity.

In a first for the industry, Haven has worked with leading manufacturer Willerby to produce The Vision, a holiday home which incorporates a raft of environmentally-friendly features.

Anna will be sharing her enthusiasm for the new holiday home on Saturday when she tours Haven's four holiday parks in Norfolk.

Anna said: 'Eco-tourism is a major player in changing the way we live our lives and the more we adapt and change our own practice the better it is for the planet. Holidaying in the UK is not only fun but it's also better for our carbon footprint. I love the idea of taking this one step further by buying a caravan that has such low impact on the environment.'

The new eco-van will produce savings of at least 45pc in electricity and gas costs with huge benefits for reducing carbon emissions and saving energy costs.

Willerby say the secret lies in the sophisticated insulation.
