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.

Teddington 800

Teddington 800

Teddington 800

Teddington is celebrating 800 years of being a Parish from 1217 when the Abbot of Westminster was asked by the Bishop of London to send a chaplain with maintenance to Tudinton, a small Saxon village belonging to Westminster Abbey. The original idea of Anne McTear and Rev. Joe Moffatt, the Vicar of St Mary with St Alban Church, the Teddington Society was asked to help with the ensuing 6 months of events and community celebrations from June to November.

A major project was to put together the history of the town which has been achieved and the result can be seen on 6 banners presently on show in the Landmark Arts Centre until October 8th as part of the Visions of Teddington exhibition assembled by LAC Manager, Lesley Bossine. The History Timeline design is by local artist and designer Sue Ribbans with content supplied by Paddy Ching, Sheena Harold, Ken Howe and John Sheaf of the Teddington Society’s Historical Research Group with extra material supplied by Pieter Morpurgo of the Friends of Bushy & Home Parks. A true community project. The Exhibition is free as is entry to St Mary with St Alban Parish Church opposite the Landmark in Ferry Road, Teddington
