We are a small charitable organisation dedicated to the care of an area of land in the very heart of residential Kew, in the London Borough of Richmond upon Thames, which contains woodland, dead wood (loggeries), a pond, meadow, a wild-life corridor and bee hives.
Pensford Field is a haven for wild flowers, birds and insects. It is a site of importance for nature conservation (SINC) and a designated area of tranquility (TFL). It also inspires art, children’s play and education.
As custodians of the Field, the Trust seeks to follow a programme of active and sustainable management to promote nature conservation, to encourage environmental education and to enhance the biodiversity value of Pensford Field for future generations. The trustees aim to maintain the field in its natural state, encouraging natural species to flourish.
Pensford Field Workdays
Usually take place once a month and everybody is welcome. We undertake some light gardening so please bring gloves as we provide the tools. Homemade biscuits and hot drinks are served for elevenses and if the weather is fine we cook potatoes for our lunch on the bonfire. If you would like to be on our mailing list for this or any of our events please get in touch with John O’Brien at firstname.lastname@example.org
Girls Art Club
Pensford Field plays host on Saturday mornings to a Girls Art and Nature club. To attend the club, which runs from 11am till midday, please call Pam on 07500 178 578.
Free to attend, and open to girls age seven or above, the club offers a chance for local kids to meet up at the field, go exploring, and do small art projects. Recently we’ve made booklets, cards, sketches and pressed flower decorations. New friendships and natural discoveries are made every week.
