Commons & Office Staff

Although administered by the Board of Conservators, the day-to-day management of Wimbledon & Putney Commons falls to the Chief Executive and his team.

Based in the Ranger’s Office, the Chief Executive is assisted by the Deputy Clerk & Ranger, the Wildlife and Conservation Officer and a Personal Assistant/Communications Officer.

The Ranger's Office is open 7 days a week, from 9am to 5pm, with an on-call Duty Officer providing 24-hour cover to deal with emergencies whenever the office is closed. The Duty Officer can be reached on 020 8788 7655 or via the emergency contact buzzer at the door to the Ranger's Office.

We kindly ask that you do not call out of hours for non-emergencies.
