Ponds of Wimbledon and Putney Commons: A Virtual Walk Event

Ponds of Wimbledon and Putney Commons: A Virtual Walk

26th April 2021 from 6.30pm

Zoom Webinar

Join local resident Alan Blower us on a virtual walk following a five-mile walking route linking our nine ponds. Enjoy the Common’s natural beauty from your armchair, and learn some of the Commons history including royal celebrations, ghostly stories and the exploits of villains.

This is a repeat of the talk that Alan gave us in March but due to some technical issues, some people were unable to join us.  Alan has therefore kindly agreed to give the talk again. Please register on Zoom using the link below:

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.


The Talk is again free of charge but Alan has asked if donations from this talk could go to the fundraising campaign launched jointly by the Wimbledon Common Golf Club and the London Scotttish Golf Club who are raising funds towards the restoration of the golf course on the Commons following several years of extreme weather and the last year of much higher footfall during the pandemic. 

If you would like to make a donation, you can visit their GoFundMe page here: https://gofund.me/84a8615e

We look forward to seeing you again on the 26th April!



Holding an Event on Wimbledon and Putney Commons

COVID-19 - Please note that due to current COVID-19 restrictions, the number and nature of events given approval is limited.  Please contact the Ranger's Office for further information.


As the Commons are now a popular location for events, you will need to seek permission from the Ranger's Office before organising any formal or semi-formal event on or across the Commons.  This is to ensure that there is no clash of events that would spoil the enjoyment of participants, or negatively impact our visitors, other users or  indeed have a negative impact on the Commons - a protected Site of Special Scientific Interest.

Whilst we are limited to the size and type of event we can host here on the Commons, we are always happy to see if we can help.  Please complete the Enquiry Form and one of our team will get back to you to discuss your request.  

As a charity, we do charge for events on the Commons.  The charges will depend on the nature of the event.  Please contact the Ranger's Office for further information.
