Exhilarated; Wow…Just Wow About Wildlife; 2022

It was in the middle of a heatwave, the grass was parched, temps already soaring early morning, but could the shade of our age old willows entice families to come along. Come they certainly did! Even before it was due to start folk started to pour in. It was like the opening of floodgates. Before we knew it all our stands were mobbed....

Plant Sale 2022. Excited; A New Year and it’s Time To Sow.

Well the year has begun very kindly to us weather wise, so not sure if making a start on sowing in the greenhouse is wise or tempting fate! The cuttings taken in autumn are already sprouting some healthy looking roots. Each year we have a plant sale to raise funds for the gardens, but the last couple of years have been difficult as Covid scuppered most of our events, resulting in  having to sell plants from our drive. Seemingly I'm now known as plant lady!...

Community…That’s What its all About; Pruning Radipole Community Orchard

We had a fantastic turn out at our Pruning Radipole Community Orchard. The three beaming amigos you see below are Friends of Radipole Park & Gardens. Why do they look so happy? Have they discovered a pot of gold? Maybe found it takes only three men to lift a long pole? No they've found something way, way better. Volunteers!...

All Hallows' Hoolies Radipole Gardens

Free Pumpkins Galore; 450 Years On and Which Side Are You?

This year we're combining our annual pumpkin carving with Weymouth's 450 celebrations. Thanks to a generous grant from Weymouth Town Council we can supply 100 free pumpkins to be carved at our All Hallows' Hoolies. When you arrive at Radipole gardens queue up and sign in to receive your free pumpkin, one per child. You'll then be directed to a carving table with tools, but we respectfully request that parents supervise their children during this activity, after all its good fun to do these things together. Mind you, I do remember a couple of somewhat eager parents last time taking this very seriously, taking over charge of...

2020; Lottery Bid Presentation & The Year We Realise the Importance of Green Spaces

Hands up, I'll admit to having deserted my scribings on our website over the last few months. It's been a hard one to focus on, hence most of our postings have been on our Facebook page. The year 2020 has been one hell of a ride so far. We are all living through something previously unimaginable, life changing, that'll go down in world history much the same as the Spanish Flu pandemic of 1918. As far as our Friends of Radipole Park and Gardens committee are concerned it has been a bit of an unknown. Watching and waiting for news of lockdown/slow release/ things permitted/possibility of...

What More Can We Say? Thank You For ALL Your Support

It's that time of year, Christmas done and dusted, visiting families returned from whence they came, beds stripped, washed and remade, cats enjoying last remnants of the turkey, me praying for a swift return to those lighter evenings, and our thoughts turn towards what was and what will be....

Blackbird in Radipole gardens

Revealed;- Some Hidden Gems; Radipole Park and Gardens

Watching bats sweeping to and fro in these gardens are one of my treasured childhood memories, though what they were probably feeding on, not such good memories! Playing tennis in the evenings usually meant you spent more time swiping away those mozzies who seemed determined to devour you....
