2013 Presidentâ€™s Report
Date posted: Tuesday 31st December 2013
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 Trissâ€™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.
