Dacombes goes green(er) on its zero carbon journey

Wimborne’s oldest independent home electronics store, Dacombes (https://www.dacombesofwimborne.com/), is now harnessing the newest technology, with solar energy powering its extensive array of domestic appliances and home cinemas in its Dorset showroom. Matt Renaut, Dacombes’ Managing Director, noted the significant electricity demand of their operations, likening it to ‘three kettles on the boil all day long.’ 

Wimborne Allotment Association

Wimborne Allotment Association

Wimborne Allotment Association is a non-profit making Association, set up to promote and protect allotments in Wimborne. We welcome members from any of the allotment sites in Wimborne. We offer members discounts on seeds, and provide opportunities to socialise, and attend visits and speaker events. The Association is aware of the part we can all play in protecting our environment, and maintaining our soil by using sustainable and regenerative methods of growing. We want to encourage our members with information and new ideas to help us adapt to our changing  climate.

Reusable Nappy Week 2024

The aim is to spread the reusable word far and wide to as many people as possible! Our theme this year is One Change - Big Difference, with the idea that parents can choose to reuse and affect more  than just their rubbish bin. With the help of incentive schemes and eco advocates, we can make a real difference; not only for this Reusable Nappy Week, but every day for the future.

The new joint Local Transport Plan 4 (LTP4) will set out the long-term goals, strategy, and policies for improving transport for everyone over the next 10-15 years. 

Wimborne Swifts

Wimborne Swifts

Swifts have always been a feature in our skies above Wimborne. Their distinctive screams as they zip around the Minster, across the square and neighbouring streets, but their numbers have dwindled and they NEED OUR HELP. 

Random Acts of Kindness Day

Become a RAKtivist®!  RAKtivist® is short for ‘Random Acts of Kindness activist’.

They’re the people that end up brightening what otherwise would be ‘just a normal day’. You know the sort. The little, tender gestures when you need them most (but expect them the least).
