Meanwhile, a gin bar and plenty of craft beer, ciders and real ales will keep the party swinging.

WHY 3 ACRES?

Many years ago, The Green used to be called 3 Acres.

In the 1880’s The Council acquired an area of open pastureland part of the Canford Manor estate, through a land swap with Lord Wimborne. According to local author Iris Morris the space was originally referred to as Three Acre Field (in size it is 3 acres, 19 poles).
