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? 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!...

Welcome to our Free Radipole Community Orchard; 10 Years On and Still Going Strong.

It's that time of year again, the sun sinks lower, leaves start to fall, fruits ripen. Had a mooch through our community orchard today, to see what's available. Fruit, nuts and berries dotted here and there, plenty of wildlife feasting on the fallers and fruits in the trees, especially enjoying the bumper crop of golden crabapples. These small, apple-like fruits might be sharp to the tongue but can be used in so many ways, from jellies to liquors.

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...

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....
