Friends of Holmwood Common

The Friends of Holmwood Common have close links with the Common and play an important role in supporting our work. They run a programme of events and activities, raising money to enhance people's enjoyment.

The Friends of Holmwood Common was founded in 2000. They welcome others who value the Common and enjoy its woodland and open spaces. They act as a network of eyes and ears helping to look after the Common.

They have a hard working committee elected by Members to reflect and represent their interests. They aim to represent the community in responding to local issues that may affect the Common and the committee is in regular dialogue with the National Trust's local team.

The goals include creating awareness of the natural history and ecology of the Common and the major concern is its conservation for future generations. 

One of their latest projects is patnering with dorking Rotary club to raise money for the Patchwork Garden project by walking 1000 miles around the Common on Sunday April 28 2019. This is the equivalent  of walking from Lands End to John O'Groats! The Patchwork Garden project aims to help those with physical or mental health conditions, learning disabilities, dementia, isolation or bereavement through friendship and gardening.

They organise regular walks, picnics and other events. Please visit the Facebook page or contact them by email
