Poole Park water fountain reinstalled

The water fountain in Poole Park, installed as part of the centenary celebrations in 1990, has recently been repaired and refurbished as part of the Heritage Landscape Scheme - one of six projects that fall under the National Lottery Heritage Fund improvements in the park.

Originally this site was the location for a band-stand, which was removed in the early 1960s and lay empty until funds became available for the centenary works.

Beat the winter blues
Would you like the chance to spend time outdoors doing a healthy activity and helping nature? BCP’s friendly Rangers are looking for volunteers to help manage our beautiful nature reserves in the north part of Bournemouth.

The groups meet at 10am on Wednesdays and Thursdays on different sites each week. You’ll get plenty of support and variety, doing tasks such as managing vegetation, fencing, path maintenance, pond restoration, and litter picking. You'll also be able to learn new skills such as hedge laying. You don’t need any experience just lots of enthusiasm, and you can choose the hours to suit you. You’ll probably get muddy and a bit damp, so you’ll need to come in suitable clothing and wearing sturdy footwear, and bring your lunch or snacks and a drink.

We work hard to make our sessions open to everyone so please email us for more details. We look forward to welcoming you. 
News in brief
Don't forget to visit Steamer Point Nature Reserve in Christchurch on Saturday 5 December to see the beautiful craft stalls, festive decorations and kids crafts on offer at their Christmas fair.

Kings Park Nursery is now closed for the winter, re-opening in March 2022. We’re gathering customer feedback through a survey, so if you have 5 minutes to spare, your thoughts would be very welcome.

If you're feeling peckish over the festive period, why not visit our Street Food Corner Christmas trader in Bournemouth's Lower Gardens, available until 5 January 2022. Serving up delicious German sausages, loaded fries, hot chocolate and churros, even your taste buds will get in the festive spirit!
