Did you know: The Upper, Central and Lower Gardens  near St Peter’s Church have all been Green Flag winners since 1999 and run from Bournemouth Pier to the boundary with Poole, which means the gardens are 3km long! They are all part of the Bourne Valley Greenway and are Listed Grade II in the English Heritage Register of Parks and Gardens.

Moon Fact #1

The Moon (or Luna) is the Earth’s only natural satellite and was formed 4.6 billion years ago around some 30–50 million years after the formation of the solar system. The Moon is in synchronous rotation with Earth meaning the same side is always facing the Earth.
