Queen’s Promenade Friends

We are a voluntary group, founded in 2019, that improves the river promenade in Kingston upon Thames:

  • as a recreational space
  • a place of horticultural interest
  • for wildlife habitat and biodiversity.

In doing so, we

  • are inclusive to all
  • provide value for local communities, create connections and improve health and wellbeing for our volunteers and all local residents and visitors.
