Weymouth Town Council celebrates Great Big Green Week with environmental initiatives

Weymouth Town Council is to recognise Great Big Green week which runs from Saturday 8th – 16th June by showing their commitment to the environment. 

Coinciding with The Great Big Green Week, on Saturday June 15th, Weymouth Town Council are organising a Fun Day at Radipole Park which will be re opened to the public following a redevelopment of the park making it a usable greenspace for everyone. The revitalized park features a sensory garden which will be home to lots of wildlife, a scooter track, a newly painted multi use games area and much more.

Radipole is one of nine greenspaces maintained by the Council. Additionally, two of these parks, Sandsfoot and Greenhill Gardens hold the prestigious Green Flag award, which recognises parks and green spaces that meet high standards of quality and sustainability. 

The Council’s commitments include providing allotments, maintaining the Blue Flag Award for Weymouth Beach, and moving to electric vehicles and electric equipment. The Council also offers free usage of their litter-picking equipment, encouraging residents to help keep Weymouth clean. More details on this can be found here.
