About the Friends Group

what we do 

who are we?

The Friends of Radipole Park & Gardens (FRPAG) are a group of people passionate about our local park who work together in a variety of ways.

At present we are a committee of seven, but would always welcome more members.

In a normal year (these last two have been anything but!) we would hold monthly meetings to discuss matters such as fund-raising projects, arranging and holding events etc.

Being a friendly bunch we also like to have socials now and then, including our partners and families, as they are often (willingly) roped into helping out one way or another.

It might be a meal out, a picnic, a BBQ, it’s really just to meet and have a chance to have a catch up and natter about things other than park related.

Working alongside Weymouth Town Council’s Parks Department we are always fundraising for the next thing we’d like to see installed.

At present it’s our Sensory Garden, but it won’t be long before we’re onto our next project…what will it be?

We’ve yet to decide.

Our committee members at present are;

  • Mike Goulden (Chair)
  • Dave Cave (Treasurer)
  • Sue Hogben (Secretary)
  • Stuart Rowland (Committee member)
  • Peter Rendall (Committee member)
  • Cllr. Peter Barrow (Committee member)
  • Mark South (Committee member)

There’s always that next event to be planned and promoted…not to mention the never ending fund-raising necessary to enable us to continue improving the park for our local community.

small team, big ideas

We are passionate about what we do, but as a fairly small team, most of a certain age, we would welcome with open arms any offers of help or support…of any kind. The events we run in the gardens take much man (woman) handling of tents, erecting of gazebos,
