This year's Green Festival has been hailed a great success by the organisers. The aims of the festival were to engage with as many people as possible from as wide a background as possible, with a particular focus on young people and local businesses. With this in mind, the packed week long programme had something for everybody.
Planet Wimborne is proud to announce the publication of an all new trail for the town. The trail is partially fully accessible and can be extended to take in other areas of the town. There are links to 'green' themed videos, web sites, music and poetry to enhance people's enjoyment and experience of the natural world.
