Comment on this story on the

“The Bluebell Walk” is an annual sponsored walk which has been run by the Putney and Roehampton Friends for 13 years. 

This year, the Walk takes place on Sunday 22nd May and has a wonderful new venue -

Syon Park, home of the Duke of Northumberland.  The beautiful gardens at Syon have been renowned for their extensive collection of rare trees and plants since they were designed by Capability Brown in the mid-18th century, and walkers can investigate the wildflower meadow along the Thames as well as visiting the Great Conservatory and Syon House itself. 

Walkers of all ages can join the event to raise money for Cancer Research UK while getting some exercise at the same time!  Further details and entry forms will be available from the end of March, but in the meantime anyone who would like to register for the Walk should email
