The Friends of Wimbledon and Putney Commons

Who are the Friends?

The Friends of Wimbledon and Putney Commons bring together all of those who are connected by a passion for the Commons, for the purposes of collective celebration and fund raising.  The Constitution and remit of the Friends can be found here

Why Support Us?

Every path, heathland, bog, stream, pond and woodland has an incalculable value that requires ongoing investment.  Without skilled conservation officers, mounted keepers and 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 amongst those who share your passion and commitment.
