Friends of Blythe Hill Fields (FBHF) is a voluntary community group that was established in October 2003. Its mission is to promote the increased use, access to and enjoyment of Blythe Hill Fields in the London Borough of Lewisham for local residents and other users of this essential open space. The Friends liaises with partners such as Lewisham Borough Council, in order to maintain existing facilities as well as develop and install new ones.


The Friends meet on a regular basis and meetings are open to anyone who has an interest in Blythe Hill Fields. Friends' Meetings are an opportunity for all local residents and regular users of the Fields to get involved in the Blythe Hill Fields project and meet other residents who have a shared interest. All meeting minutes are uploaded into our document archive. The Friends are always keen for more people to attend on a regular basis and ensure that any plans and decisions are truly representative.

The Friends has a constitution, Chair, Secretary and a committee who are elected annually by the Friends. The Committee meets in between the Friends meetings to manage the work of the members and to take ideas and suggestions forward.

As part of the on-going promotion of the Fields and the Friends, the Committee is keen to develop a range of projects and activities in and around the Fields that are suitable for all ages, see events for more details and to see what activities you could join in!
