Discover Farnham


Welcome to this autumn edition of the enewsletter. I hope you have been enjoying the unseasonal but lovely spell of mild and sunny weather.
Did you manage to come along to the Food Festival at the end of September? Thousands of people visited making it the busiest yet. We are now planning for Christmas, which will begin in Farnham on Saturday 21 November with the Christmas lights switch-on.
I hope you enjoy this edition and find it useful. Please do encourage your family and friends to subscribe too.
If you have any questions about anything to do with Farnham, please do get in touch. If we do not know the answer we will certainly be able to point you in the right direction.

Best wishes
Iain Lynch
Farnham Town Clerk

Name it

Our new hybrid electric vehicle is going to be busy. We will be using it to transport equipment to events and to reach less accessible parts of the cemeteries and allotments. As it is so quiet, we will also be using it to water the hanging baskets early in the morning.
As the vehicle is set to become a familiar sight around Farnham we think it needs a name so please do send us your suggestions.
