Friends of Turnham Green
Friends of Turnham Green are a community based voluntary organisation, founded in 2007 and we have been working tirelessly ever since to rescue Turnham Green from municipal shabbiness We began by successfully lobbying to remove derelict buildings and in their place created a natural play area for children together with a large wild flower meadow. Since then we have raised money to replace broken bins, cracked paths, bent railings and also undertaken a number of collaborations with Abundance London to improve bio-diversity. As a result, the park has received the Green Flag award from the environmental charity Keep Britain Tidy for the past 4 years in a row. We hold an annual AGM at Christ Church every year and a team of enthusiastic volunteers regularly turn out in rain or shine to help with twice yearly weeding and planting sessions.
Turnham Green in west London is the heart of the Turnham Green Conservation Area and a valued green lung, offering recreational value to local residents and office workers alike. It’s triangle of parkland represents a high profile and well used civic face of the borough, where the residential and commercial meet on either side. With Christ Church at its centre, and Chiswick Town Hall over looking it, it is a space that features both natural beauty, together with key listed buildings.
Over the years we have received funding from BIFFA, S106, members and Waitrose’s Community Matters.
If you would like to join Friends of Turnham Green or just learn more about the work that we do please get in touch. We are especially happy to hear from people wishing to volunteer to help with maintaining Turnham Green and those who can help with fundraising. It would be helpful if you could share with us what your interest is in Turnham Green – for instance if you live locally or work nearby.
