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.

Geoff Price with fellow FBHP volunteers

Members will be saddened to hear of the recent death of Geoff Price. Geoff had been a staunch supporter of the Friends for many years before joining the committee and taking a more active role. When the task of organising the distribution of newsletters fell vacant Geoff stepped in and ensured that this continued efficiently and smoothly.

Members attending meetings and the AGM will remember Geoff’s smiling friendly face dispensing refreshments. This again was managed skilfully with Geoff sourcing the best bargains to be enjoyed by us all.

Geoff lived and worked in the Teddington and Hampton Wick area for many years as a teacher. These skills he brought to the Trailblazers scheme at the Stockyard in Bushy Park. Here along with other volunteers he was able to introduce young people to natural history in a classroom and open air environment.

He was a true friend to the Society. If Geoff said he would take on a task he did it properly and thoroughly. He was kind, reliable and a consummate gentleman. We will miss him greatly.
