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.

John Farndon

It is with great sadness that we have recently learnt of the sad and unexpected death of John Farndon , a much loved and respected local gentleman who was Chair of the Friends between 1997-2000.

John Farndon was chairman of FBHP from 1997 to 2000. His funeral at Hanworth Crematorium on 23 December 2016 was attended by many local people, including representatives from Probus and The Hampton Society, acknowledging the service he had given to his community.

Sheila Farndon was well supported by her family who made moving contributions to the farewell ceremony. We heard anecdotes about John’s life, his career as a chemist and patent examiner, and his great enthusiasm for foreign travel.

After serving as Chairman, John had continued to attend our meetings and functions regularly. We will all miss his cheery presence.
