Working tirelessly to rescue Turnham Green from municipal shabbiness.
Friends of Turnham Green are a community based voluntary organisation, founded in 2007 and have been working tirelessly ever since to rescue Turnham Green from municipal shabbiness They 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 they 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.
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 they have received funding from BIFFA, S106, members and Waitrose’s Community Matters. Their guardian angels are Cllr John Todd and Dr Jan Hewlett, a retired bio-diversity expert for the GLA.
