Friends Groups

The Parks Section works with 8 constituted 'Friends Groups' in the development and management of Weymouth & Portland's Borough Gardens.

Friends Groups are made up of local volunteers who actively promote public awareness and help raise funding for the enhancement of the gardens.  They act as a consultative group to the council and lobby for the interests of the gardens.

  • Easton Community Group

    The Easton Community Group has been up and running for seven years and has 30 very committed members who are working tirelessly to ensure that the gardens are at the centre of village life.

  • Friends of Greenhill Gardens (FOGG)

    The Friends of Greenhill Gardens have made real headway in helping the parks department to improve the gardens and attain a nationally recognised award since they formed in March 2007.

  • Friends of Lodmoor Country Park

    The Friends of Lodmoor works in partnership with the parks section of the borough council to improve the country park for all to enjoy.

  • Friends of Radipole Park & Gardens

    The Friends Group was set up in June 2006. The primary aim of the group is to work in partnership with Weymouth & Portland Borough Council to preserve the benefits of Radipole Park for the community.

  • Friends of Victoria Gardens

    Friends of Victoria Gardens were established in May 2008 with the full support of Weymouth and Portland Borough Council, who is responsible for the Gardens.

  • Friends of Rodwell Trail and Sandsfoot Gardens

    Friends of Rodwell Trail is a group of people of different ages and interests who have one thing in common: we want to see real improvements to the Rodwell Trail.

  • Friends of Nothe Gardens

    Setting up of the friends was instigated by Weymouth & Portland Borough Council following an outline initiative by the government to involve and allow ordinary citizens more say in the management and development of their environment. The current chair of the group is Roger Genge.
