The Friends of Barnes Common (FoBC) formed in 1992 and has been a not-for-profit, limited liability company with charitable status since April 2015. Working closely with the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, the charity oversees the conservation of Barnes Common and Leg o’ Mutton Local Nature Reserves. It is heavily involved in community and education engagement on both sites and at Vine Road Recreation Ground SW13, where it is currently in the consultation phase of a proposed major enhancement of the site.
Sharon Morgan leads on learning & community engagement programmes, and oversees our websites & social media. She works part-time and joined FoBC in 2015.
Will Dartnell leads on the conservation and stewardship of the Common and Leg o’ Mutton local nature reserves. He works part-time and joined FoBC in 2017.
Will Scott-Mends assists Will in all areas of conservation work. He works part-time and joined FoBC in 2019.
Today, the charity is overseen by a Board of Directors and Management Committee. We have an active, growing membership, many of whom are part of our dedicated and invaluable team of volunteers.
