We work to protect and improve Clapham Common.

As an active environmental charity of some 500 members, FCC runs conservation projects to improve the biodiversity of the Common and restore its buildings and facilities. We plant trees, shrubs, bulbs and turf and renew wetland areas.

Other improvements initiated by FCC include works to water fountains, graffiti removal and lobbying Lambeth to keep events under control and ensure maintenance is carried out. Our fundraising events include an annual, summer party.

Friends of Clapham Common


We wish to encourage new friends to play a part on our Committee and hope to draw on a range of experience, with all aspects of our community represented.

We ask for a commitment of around 1 hour a week. We are currently looking for people with publicity and IT skills and/or with a good knowledge of biodiversity management in urban parks.

If you feel you have something to offer or know someone else who has, please email friends@claphamcommon.net.


FCC operates in partnership with the Clapham Common Management Advisory Committee (CCMAC), the community group working with Lambeth Council to run Clapham Common.
FCC has one representative on CCMAC.
