NewsSeptember 2015 - Unfortunately Boscombe Chine Gardens finished runner up in the Best Large Park in the South & South East of England in the Britain in Bloom competition. We were narrowly beaten into second place by half a percent, well done Bournemouth Lower Gardens but we'll hopefully do better next year.
We are pleased to report that the Friends of Boscombe Chine Gardens retained their Level 5 - Outstanding Award, after entering the community garden in the ‘It’s your neighbourhood’ scheme, with a slightly improved score on last year, which is great news, well done to all our volunteers.
September 2014 - For the fourth year running, Boscombe Chine Gardens has been awarded Best Large Park in the South & South East of England in the Britain in Bloom competition.
In addition to this the Boscombe Chine Gardens community garden was entered in the ‘It’s your Neighbourhood’ category. Entries in this category are graded Level 1 - Establishing, Level 2 - Improving, Level 3 - Developing, Level 4 - Thriving and Level 5 - Outstanding. We are pleased to report that the Friends of Boscombe Chine Gardens retained their Level 5 - Outstanding Award, which is brilliant news.
Well done to the Bournemouth Parks team and all the Friends of Boscombe Chine Gardens who volunteer and give their time to support the great work within the gardens, long may this continue.
April 2013 - We are delighted to announce that the Friends of Boscombe Chine Gardens has been successful with a bid to the National Lottery and has achieved funding for the Easter Family Fun Day and ten replacement Nature Trail Boards.
The Family Fun Day funded by the National Lottery through the Big Lottery Fund was a tremendous success and we are in the process of producing a video clip of the day's events, which will be published on the website in the near future.
The twelve Nature Trail Boards that are located around the gardens have served the local community very well during the past eight years and we have developed a more robust and easier to maintain mark 3 design. We hope to introduce the new design boards during the autumn period and look forward to children and families using them for many years to come.
Many thanks to the National Lottery for their generous grant, which is a tremendous boost for the charity and will benefit both visitors and local residents who enjoy walking around the nature trail.<
