Twigs Garden Club is all about providing a ‘laid back gardening for all’ approach to gardening. This project is open for all ages, whether you have a large or small garden or just a window box, do come along and discuss your interest, garden, socialise and make new friends.

Welcome to ‘Birds of Poole Harbour’, a charity completely dedicated to educating people on the stunning variety of bird life in one of the country’s most picturesque locations, helping you make the most of this truly breathtaking natural harbour. From local schools, passionate residents and intrigued tourists 'Birds of Poole Harbour' offers a unique learning opportunity to a large audience. We see our role as the link to raising the profile of bird conservation and preservation in the harbour for everyone to enjoy.
Tapper Funeral Service are teaming up with Forest Holme of Poole to provide regular, monthly walks.
Some walks are short and on the flat; others are longer and more challenging; there is something for everyone who is reasonably mobile. Common to all of the walks is that professional guide David Knox plans and advertises the route well in advance, ensures all safety concerns have been taken care of, researches the places of interest on route and plans a tea-room or similar for refreshments afterwards.
These walking events will be free of charge to anyone person who is bereaved but for organisational reasons David needs to know in advance who is attending. Please feel free to contact us to express your interest.
