Friends of Wimbledon and Putney Commons Launched

"A crucial role in preserving, protecting and maintaining this unique and special place”

The Conservators have launched the Friends of Wimbledon and Putney Commons, the aim is to bring together members of the local community who are connected by a passion for the
Commons for the purposes of collective celebration and fund raising.

“Every path, heathland, bog, stream, pond and woodland has an incalculable value that requires ongoing investment,” said Diane Neil Mills, Chairman of Wimbledon and Putney Commons Conservators. “Without skilled conservation officers, mounted keepers and the other members of our very committed staff, our
unique Commons would not be as they are today: safe, clean and preserved. That is why every
contribution you make, small and large, is so important. By becoming a Friend of Wimbledon and Putney Commons, you will be playing a crucial role in preserving, protecting and maintaining this unique and special place.”

"As a Friend, you will be invited to attend special events that will provide a unique experience of the Commons. The first event of this type will be the Friends’ Launch Event on Friday 20th September 2019 from 7.00pm. This special evening will celebrate the historic links between the Commons and the London Scottish Regiment through words, music, food and wine commencing with a piper led walk from the windmill through the woods to a recital on the banks of Queensmere".

"We are delighted that both Stephen Hammond MP and the Right Honourable Justine Greening MP will be able to join us for this important occasion".

Three annual membership options are available:
Friend (Individual) £30 per annum
Friend Household - (two adults and two children) £40 per annum
Benefactor £250 per annum

You can sign up to become a Friend online on the website or alternatively you can join by post or in person at the Ranger’s Office with payment by cheque, bank transfer, standing order or credit card. Full details for both options are available on our website here.
