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...

Radipole’s Big Fun Day; Surprises That Just Keep on Giving

With our biggest event done and dusted for this year, we now have time to catch our breaths and reflect before we start to think about next year. Each year our Big Fun Day has grown in size, as our chair Mike Goulden so aptly put it, we have created a monster! O.K so it might not be the biggest event on the planet, but coming from a committee of just five, how can I kindly put this? persons of a certain age, it takes a lot of time, energy and stamina as anyone who arranges events of any size will know. Thankfully we have a regular...

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...

Can a Good Old Stomp Be Good for You? Wellbeing in Nature.

When running events in Radipole gardens, we invite along people that complement our ethos, such was the case when we organised our Wildlife & Wellbeing event back in in May. One of the ladies who attended that day, Emma Pritchard, led people on a 'stomp' through the gardens. Being a great believer in the power of nature to help heal mind and body, what she spoke about really resonated with me. We often see groups walking through our gardens, enjoying the sounds, smells, sights of nature and of course the company of others. A study undertaken by researchers at Michigan University, found that joining in group...

Plants Galore Sausage Rolls and Sensory Gardens

Nope, I'm not having one of my dizzy moments. i'm hoping some of you good folk will come along and help us for a variety of reasons. This coming Saturday 18th May is our annual plants sale in the Radipole United Church hall on Spa Road 10-12. The first good reason to help is that it will be a day when my hubster jumps for joy...

Hayley and her Hedgehogs; Why Protecting our Wildlife Really Matters

Here at Radipole we have our own identity that we are very proud of. Sometimes referred to as the Cinderella gardens of Weymouth, beautiful but secreted away in the town's proverbial back kitchen means that these gardens are a quiet green oasis away from the hustle and bustle of a busy sea side resort. Not only that but we are lucky enough to run side by side with Radipole lake and its bird reserve, making this space a perfect wildlife haven. Something we are committed to improving....

Some Knock You Down…Others Pick You Up. Weymouth’s Wonderful Community.

As you might know from the lengthy ramblings on our Radipole gardens Face Book pages and a sizeable piece in the Dorset Echo this week. Our beautiful Radipole Gardens was hit during late last Saturday night by some mindless person/people, who for some unknown reason left a trail of damage through our beautiful gardens. The main notice board took the biggest hit...
