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....

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?

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....

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....

Autumn’s Harvest Apples & Pumpkins; Radipole Gardens Carves and Creates.

There's so much going on to tell you all about that I really don't know where to start, but I guess our next event might be a good place to begin. Though this year might be drawing its cosy curtains around the park and gardens, that doesn't stop us hardy bunch from putting on a last few proverbial acts. Why not come along and join us for a couple of hours fun pumpkin carving on Saturday 19th October 2-4.30. Lets see what great designs you can create. Make sure you arrive early as there's free pumpkins to be had for all you early birds out there. (Pumpkin carving...
