Message from the Chairman

The value of time spent outdoors is not only desirable, but essential to our well-being.

We are delighted that the Friends of Barnes Common has this opportunity to work in partnership with the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, and to rethink the role of this much-loved local green space within our urban community. 

Imagine a place where recreation, learning, laughing and people meet: a place where sustainability is in-built, our interdependence with Nature celebrated, where all are welcome…. a place for today, and for tomorrow. We need you – please join us!
