Welcome

Welcome to the website of the Friends of Cannizaro Park, a voluntary organisation which is dedicated to the improvement and support of the beautiful Cannizaro Park, a Grade II * listed park in the heart of Wimbledon Common and a stone‚Äôs throw from Wimbledon Village.

Together they help to ensure that local and not so local people, who enjoy and care about the Park, can make a real difference to the appearance diversity and upkeep of the gardens, woodlands and peaceful walks throughout this lovely and historic park.

Chairman's Update March 2015

Our application to become a registered Charity is well under way, and amending our Constitution to comply with the requirements for charitable status is the last step. Therefore we urge our members to attend the Special General Meeting on Monday 16 March at 8.00pm in Cannizaro House Hotel to vote for the proposed changes to the Constitution as printed in the letter distributed to members. It is vital that we have a quorum (25 members) present to vote, so please come if you are able to do so. The business of the meeting should be fairly short and we invite you to join us for a drink afterwards, when there will be an opportunity to discuss other matters, eg. plans to raise funds to refurbish the Italian Garden.
