Sussex campsite bids to be 'greenest'

The owners of a Sussex camp site are aiming to be one of the 'most sustainable' tourism businesses.

Andy Skilton from Worthing and his wife Ulenah bought Chestnut Meadows from the St John's Ambulance service last year.

Since then the family has renovated the Bexhill-on-Sea site using recycled paint to decorate, reclaimed plastic for caravan hardstandings and roof tiles made from recycled rubber.

"It becomes a complete package - the recycled element becomes part of the campsite. For us, in this green belt environment, we just felt that was the right way," said Mr Skilton.
