The Thorney Island Society takes its name from the island in the Thames on which Westminster Abbey was founded. It is a voluntary conservation and amenity group created in 1985 when it successfully fought to save the first public library in London built in 1893. The Society incorporates The Friends of St James’s Park and The Green Park and represents the interests of residents and businesses within the area.

It is officially recognised by Westminster City Council and is a member of the London Forum of Amenity and Civic Societies. It organises visits and occasional dinners, reviews planning applications and maintains a local archive. There are 500 members, and help from Members and friends is always welcome. If you would like to help in any way, please contact us.
