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.

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


2013 President’s Report

2013 President’s Report

Pieter Morpurgo, President, FBHP

FBHP has had another good year. Our membership is stable at around 1000 members, and your contributions and donations have given us the opportunity to support both parks.

Among many projects, we have helped the Stud Nursery in Home Park with the gift of a new bench and provided the trees for the creation of a new orchard. We held our annual summer party there with well over 100 members enjoying the surroundings and excellent refreshments provided by members of the committee.

In Bushy Park your generosity has provided money for three information boards; one to the west of Heron Pond; one by the playground and the other in the Woodland Gardens near Triss’s Pond.

A dozen of us planted 5000 bulbs during a morning in November. They are in Birch Glade in the Waterhouse Gardens.

We have had an excellent series of walks and talks and thank all the speakers who so generously gave their time. They are a crucial part of FBHP.

I wish all our members a very Happy New Year and hope that you all continue to enjoy the parks and the benefits of being a member of The Friends of Bushy and Home Parks.
