Friends of Bushy & Home Parks – www.fbhp.org.uk
The Friends of Bushy and Home Parks value the rural nature of these two neighbouring parks and believe that their landscapes should be protected so that future generations can enjoy their beauty and tranquillity.

The Friends watch over the parks and their wildlife, reporting problems and encouraging improvements. We liaise with park managers and police. The committee considers proposals for development in and around the parks, opposing planning applications for structures that would spoil the views from the parks or their rural character.

Certain conditions for the use of the land were laid down: the ground should not be used for any other purpose than as allotments; no labourer should have more ground than he (sic) could cultivate himself in leisure hours; no building or structure of any description may be erected on any allotment.

Jeevika Trust – jeevika.org.uk
Jeevika Trust is Hampton Wick’s own international charity, linking village England with village India. Jeevika has worked in India for the past 40 years supporting people on the margins of rural society – low-caste and tribal people with a special focus on women. Rural India is the world’s biggest poverty trap, with over a quarter of a billion people living on less than a dollar, or 50p, per day. These are the other face of India. Jeevika helps to keep village life viable in the face of today’s huge challenges – gobalisation, climate change, HIV/Aids and the migration of young people to the cities.

Jeevika’s projects have touched more than 100,000 lives over the past decade, and focus on water & sanitation, nutrition & health, income opportunities & microfinance for women. They help to build and sustain community, family and individual livelihoods.

Jeevika Trust is always looking for new local friends – business champions, events organisers, people with a passion for India – so why not have a look at their website and get in touch.
