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.
If you’d like to join our friendly team of volunteers we will be delighted to hear from you.
You can contact our volunteer coordinator, Rosemary MacColl on email - firstname.lastname@example.org - or by telephone - 0208 943 4814.
Alternatively talk to one of our volunteers on duty and give them your contact details so that Rosemary can get in touch with you.
All our volunteers receive an induction session before you start your volunteering and you will be kitted out with a smart uniform to wear on duty. Thereafter further training and experience is organised as necessary.
The key to being a successful Friends of Bushy and Home Parks volunteer is very simple; you just need to like other people, to love our parks and to enjoy helping visitors enjoy and respect the parks, too!
With more members our voice is stronger when we campaign to protect the Parks, and with more subscription income we can do more to provide information and education about the Parks, their wildlife and their history.
