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.

New CEO of Royal Parks

We have received the news that the new CEO of Royal Parks will be Andrew Scattergood.

Andrew has worked across Whitehall including at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and the Department for Culture Media and Sport (DCMS). He is currently on secondment from DCMS to OFCOM. He has a long association with the Parks, starting with his role covering The Royal Parks brief when working as private secretary to the DCMS Secretary of State. More recently he worked very closely with TRP on the preparations for the London 2012 celebrations. It included being the Government representative for the Parks during the planning for the Games, ensuring that the intrinsic qualities of the parks were understood and protected.” Mr Scattergood’s start date is still to be agreed.
