BBC filmed us today

The BBC came down and filmed the garden today and it should have been shown on South Today between 6.30 - 7.00.

I was stewarding at the library so couldn't see it so just waiting for BBC to upload it to I Player.

Details from the Woodland Garden made by Boscombe Resource Centre

"Woodland Walk has taken over the Boscombe Resource centre for the last few months as it has grown from a small ideas into an elaborate pathway.

Adults working on the project have a range of abilities and the sharing of skills has brought people together to create this artwork".

It was founded on the 3rd of March 1981 making it 30 years old in March. The first meeting was held at the home of one the members in Carbery Avenue, Southbourne, Bournemouth. As member numbers increased the club moved to Community Halls in the Christchurch area.

By the late 1980s and early 1990s numbers were at the highest between 55 and 65 members. At the present time we have 17 members, one of whom is one from the original 1981 group.
