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.

Colin White

It is with great regret that we have to announce that Colin White died last month.

He had been a member of FBHP since the early days, and remained actively involved despite his serious illness. Colin served FBHP as auditor for many years. Also he was a great researcher and had amassed a unique collection of ancient maps of Bushy Park and its surroundings. Recently he had worked hard to help Kathy write and design the very popular “Water Gardens – How They Were Saved” booklet which FBHP published earlier this year. He will be sadly missed by all of us, and we extend our sympathy to Kathy and all her family.

As a living memory to Colin, Hawthorn trees are to be planted this autumn in the area to the south west of the Diana basin. Any donation will be most gratefully received. Please send a cheque to “Friends of Bushy and Home Parks Tree Appeal” to 81 Park Road, Teddington, Middlesex TW11 0AW
