Upcoming events

World Environment Day

World Environment Day – “Fight air pollution” – We can’t stop breathing but we can do something about the quality of our air.

Led by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) and held annually on 5 June since 1974, World Environment Day is the largest global platform for environmental public outreach and is celebrated by millions of people across the world. This year it is hosted by Sweden.

Sun, Jun 5 2022, All day


Wimborne Community Theatre

Wimborne Community Theatre’s next production will be performed on or beside the River Allen and River Stour, focussing on themes relating to a sense of what it means to live near the rivers, and the importance of the river ecology in our lives.

WCT is looking for members of the community with or without experience of theatre, to join WCT as actors, singers, dancers or backstage workers (sewing, making props, puppets, sound recordings) or anyone with creative ideas who would like to explore being part of a creative team.

St John's Eco Team

In 2018, St John’s gained its first (Bronze) Eco Church* award, thanks to features like solar panels, a ‘Give & Take’ board, no disposable cups, Toilet Twinning and effective recycling.

A small Eco Team continues to encourage progress towards the next, more challenging (Silver) award. We have created a pollinator-friendly flower-bed, installed vegetable beds in the church office garden, have fitted a bird box, and have plans for bird feeders and wildflower planting.
