Chair’s Welcome

I am delighted as Chair of the Friends to welcome you to our website. Bushy Park and Home Park are two wonderful large green oases in the south west corner of London. Feeling wild, they are natural places with ancient histories, fascinating heritage and superb wildlife. Both are Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSIs) containing rare species. These are places to be enjoyed and conserved. Which is why the Friends exist, campaigning, supporting and protecting the parks, and enhancing visitors’ enjoyment with information, advice and guidance.

We are always pleased to receive feedback. You can contact us by clicking here.

FBHP SGM (September 24, 2009) Outcome

The proposed new constitution for the Friends paving the way for an application for charitable status was agreed almost unanimously. Officers and Trustees-in-waiting were elected. Thanks were given to Tom Blaney for the considerable amount of work he has undertaken in paving the way for the Friends to become a charity. In other business, thanks to Ken Lovell for his great work on the newsletter over the past six or seven years. Ken is unable to continue due to ill-health and a replacement is sought.
