Remember the almost daily news headlines and images of how our natural beauty spots were being abused?

The 2020 hit-and-run approach for holidays had a serious, negative effect on the countryside and coastline with mass littering, fly-camping, graffiti and fire being caused by visitors simply unaware of the impact they were having. We earnestly do not want a repeat of this for the upcoming season as delicate environments cannot sustain the level of degradation they received last year.
