Radipole Ripples news letter Dec 2022

What Happened to 2022? Radipole Gardens 2023

Well, talk about being a roller coaster ride. The year 2022 was when it all should have been happening. Covid stopped us in our project tracks, we should have been celebrating the big Lottery award news, but so much has happened in those turbulent years between then and now!

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.
