Why we need
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.

Chestnut Sunday 2013 was a wonderful day for Bushy Park.
We were very lucky with the weather with the sun shining for most of the day.
From a Friends’ perspective we had a very successful day and were very busy signing up new members and answering many questions posed by the public. It is encouraging to see just how many people care about the park and the value what we do.
Simon Richards, Park Manager, commented: “The Royal Parks were delighted to see so many people enjoying themselves in the park where a really diverse event was so well supported by different sections of the local community. The weather was kind and we estimate a crowd numbered in thousands were able to learn much about the Park. I particularly want to thank Bill Swan who organized the event and all of the Royal Parks staff and other stand holders who gave their time to be at Chestnut Sunday. We look forward to an even bigger and better event on 11th May 2014!”

The Royal Parks Agency inform us that they expect the Pheasantry Centre to re-open on 22nd May.
We should emphasise that the Friends have no control over this (the cafe is operated as a concession for Royal Parks) – we are just passing along the latest information that we have.

A walk on Saturday March 23rd. 2013 led by John Lock. A few intrepid Friends braved the weather and were rewarded by seeing many deer and learning so much about Fallow deer and how they differ from their Red cousins.Full report...
