A Somerset holiday resort has formally recognised its partnership with an animal rescue charity.

Holiday Resort Unity in Brean Sands has dedicated a piece of woodland on its site, called Secret Wood, after it has become a prime release site for East Huntspill’s Secret World Wildlife Rescue’s garden birds and rabbits.

Mick Rayner, head gardener at Holiday Resort Unity, said: “The Secret Wood is the final phase of a three-year project and part of our award-winning conservation area.

“We’re really pleased to partner with Secret World to share this fantastic facility with our guests.”

Jamie Kingscott, Secret World’s release manager, said: “Our aim is to return adult animals to the place where they were rescued, returning them to their known homes.

“This year we have been able to release several different animals into the woods at Unity Farm.”
