About the Friends Group

what we do 

who are we?

The Friends of Radipole Park & Gardens (FORPAG) are a group of people passionate about our local park who work together in a variety of ways. Our aims are to make sure that our green space and its facilities are available to everyone.

Working alongside Weymouth Town Council’s Parks Department, we succeeded in obtaining a £1.4 million Lottery grant to update the park. This has enabled:

  • An exciting new natural play area – a chance for children to explore and discover while having fun.
  • New and improved recreational facilities for the whole family: free to access table tennis tables and petanque, tennis and basketball courts, as well as a new nature trail and an orienteering course
  • A refreshment kiosk to purchase snacks and drinks – a perfect pit stop for dog walkers
  • Toilets, more free parking and new signage

We have also raised our own funds to create a new sensory garden in the Park.

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

Our committee members are:

  • Sue Hogben and Dave Cave  (Co-Chairs)
  • Dave Cave (Treasurer)
  • Sue Hogben (Secretary)
  • Stuart Rowland (Committee member)
  • Cllr. Peter Barrow (Committee member)
  • Mark South (Committee member)

looking to volunteer?

We are passionate about what we do but, as a fairly small team, we welcome with open arms any offers of help or support - one off or on a regular basis. Our new sensory garden will provide plenty of opportunities to get out in the fresh air and get down and dirty and the community orchard is another Friends space where we often need a helping hand. The events we run also take much man (woman) handling of tents, erecting of gazebos, manning stalls etc. Great opportunities for meeting new folk and having a natter with others in your community. Please see our volunteering page for more information.
