Clapham Common is one of the largest open spaces in London and performs an essential role as a green lung and a place for recreation. The common has existed for over 1000 years, but the pressures on its unique character are immense.
Friends of Clapham Common works actively with the community to maintain and enhance the beauty and character of Clapham Common for the lasting benefit of all. This is an active community group with projects to improve the biodiversity of Clapham Common, help restore its buildings and facilities, and contribute to the planning of large events.
Volunteers encourage all who love Clapham Common and wish to see it maintained in good health, for its next 1000 years, to join in and help with the work.
One such way is to attend the many events that are to be held over the next few months. These include:
