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...

And the Band Played On; Weymouth Concert Brass Band

I can't believe we are already over half way through the year! Summer is finally upon us, delicious warmth on face, birds music-making in the trees and it's time to drag out and brush off those picnic baskets. What better way to spend a hot summer's day than lying in the dappled shade of our willows, liquid refreshment in hand, those scrummy fresh scones, cream and jam just beckoning you from our tea tent...

Wow Wow Wow and Wow Again…10,000 Hits and Growing Fast

What can we say but a huge thank you to all our followers. We've literally just passed our goal of 10,000 hits! Make sure you follow us to see what's happening in our wonderful park and gardens. This year is going to be a real goodie. Lots going on. We'll be submitting stage II of our Parks for People Heritage Lottery bid and it'll be fingers, toes and everything crossed then that we succeed, it certainly won't be through lack of effort or trying! We'll be making a start on the Sensory Garden working in conjunction with tutors and students of Kingston Maurward. This will be a real...

Take a Walk on the Wildside; Fun and Frolics in Radipole Gardens

Things are coming together nicely now for our next event in Radipole Gardens on Saturday 4th May 11-3pm.   Working in partnership with Natural Choices, Stepping into Nature and Active Ageing our wildlife event this year is going to be bigger and better. It's long been known that time spent in the great outdoors has many benefits. Communing with nature, wildlife and a bit of tree hugging never did anyone any harm. In fact it's been proven to be not only beneficial for our physical but also mental health. This years event has so much to offer people of all ages, all interests and activity levels and its free...

How You Can Help Us Build Our Sensory Garden Without a Trug or Trowel in Sight

As a Friends group we hold events nearly all year round for all manner of reasons. One is to get people coming along and enjoy our beautiful park and gardens, you'd be surprised at how many that attend our events have absolutely no idea the gardens are here. (That also includes people who have driven past the avenue of trees lining Radipole Park Drive many times!) A lot of our events are completely free for everyone to enjoy such as the Halloween Hoolie and Cider Apple Pressing that we have just run in the gardens, where children and their parents/grandparents could come along and participate in all...

They Came… They Saw… They Cut, Created and Carved in Radipole gardens.

The sun shone down on us last Saturday, though the wind was a bit parky to say the least. But that didn't stop families coming out to enjoy our latest event put on in the gardens. Halloween Hoolie and Cider Apple Pressing. As time drew nearer to the event start, we were all set up and waiting, wondering if many people would be coming along on such a brisk day. We needn't have worried...

There’s One Heck of a Hoolie in Radipole Gardens; Halloween Hoolie and Cider Apple Pressing.

Well, it's that time of year again! Autumn is tugging at summer's sleeve, begging her to relinquish her grip on time. Worry not though we have a couple of events left in our calender. What would October be without a mention of all things Halloween. We've got that sorted. Saturday 27th October come along to Radipole gardens for our HALLOWEEN HOOLIE  and CIDER APPLE PRESSING. The first 20 children to arrive will find a pumpkin waiting for its makeover. Lots of bits and bobs to make your own Halloween decorations...

Success; Radipole Gardens Goes All Out in True Patriotic WWII style.

Well, that's the final big event of our year done and dusted and boy did we go out with bloody big bang in true patriotic WWII style! Greeting the crowds coming to our event was this Big Beast shown below. This monster vehicle was parked out in the tennis club car park (sadly minus the even bigger tracked beast who would have been on her back had she not blown something to do with oil.)  She guzzled approx £100 in fuel for owner Colvyn Gillmon just to get here here from Dorchester! Though our 1940's Big Fun Day was a cracking success, of course that only happens...
