The Friends of Barnes Common (FoBC) was formed in 1992. Since April 2015 we have been a not-for-profit, limited liability company with charitable status and oversee the conservation of Barnes Common. We work closely with Richmond Council and emergency service teams on issues including conservation, outdoor learning, planning considerations, environmental policy and homelessness.
Our Conservation Manager and Outdoor Learning Manager are part-time members of staff. Our aims remain conservation, education through outdoor learning and community engagement.
Today, the charity is overseen by a Board of Directors and Management Committee. We have an active and growing membership, as well as a dedicated and invaluable team of volunteers.
