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.

Keep Up-to-date

Members and non-members can receive emails about events in the parks. To subscribe, please enter your email address below.

Vacancy - Newletter Editor

Re-posted 17 December 2009

The position of Newsletter Editor has unexpectedly become available again. This is a very interesting position for an enthusiastic person.

Exciting Opportunity

An exciting opportunity has arisen to work with the Friends in the capacity of Newsletter Editor. Please note that this is a voluntary position.

The newsletter is published quarterly. Its aim is to keep all members up-to-date with what is happening in the parks and the environs.

The ideal candidate will have a real interest in the parks and be keen to seek out material that will provide an interesting and informative read for members.

The principal responsibility of this role is to bring together the various articles, photos and other material that is submitted and format them accordingly before briefing the printers.

The successful applicant will need to have good level of literacy and (at least) basic computer skills. Experience in the use of MS Word or Publisher or the like would be very helpful. An ability to deal with deadlines is important too.

There may be opportunities to get involved with reporting of Walks, Talks and other events.

This is a brilliant opportunity to learn more about the parks and be closely involved in day-to-day events.
