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.

Teddington Society donation

Teddington Society donation

Sheena Harold presenting the cheque to Colin Muid

The Teddington Society has presented the Friends with a hugely generous donation of £1250. This magnificent sum is from the proceeds of “Teddington in Flower” where members of the Society are asked to open their back gardens to the public for charity.

Sheena Harold, the Chair of The Teddington Society, presented Colin Muid, Chair of the Friends of Bushy and Home Parks with a cheque at the Information Point in Bushy Park on Saturday 14 July and said “This year we divided the resulting donations in half with one half going to the Friends and the other to the Landmark Arts Centre.”

Colin Muid said “I am almost lost for words at being presented with this donation. All I can say is a tremendous thank you to the Society, the organisers and participants in Teddington in Flower, and to the members of the public who visited the gardens and gave so generously. We will now have to decide how to use the donation. I hope we can somehow reflect Teddington in Flower and the Society’s purpose in our choice.”
