Welcome to Wimbledon and Putney Commons

IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR VISITORS ABOUT FIRES

With the hot weather set to continue over the weekend and into next week, the grass and heath on the Commons is tinder dry and could very easily catch on fire.  If you plan to visit over this dry spell, please take great care to ensure any cigarettes are put out and disposed of properly, and that rubbish is put into the bins or taken away with you.   BBQs are not permitted because of the danger they pose to our vital habitats - our Keepers are instructed to put out any BBQ/cookfires they come across.  This is for your own safety as well as that of our staff and wildlife.

If you see a fire anywhere on the Commons, please call us straight away - we have a Duty Officer on call 24/7 to deal with such emergencies - 020 8788 7655.
