It’s 25 years of Farnham in Bloom and the judges have visited Farnham to judge our entries into the South and South East in Bloom competition. We will find out the result in September. In the meantime, we hope you are enjoying the lovely hanging baskets, troughs and planters that you can see around Farnham. We would like to thank all our sponsors including BBS Ltd, suppliers of MagiMix products.
If you have been inspired by Farnham in Bloom, we have plenty of ideas about how you can get involved in making Farnham a better place. Find out more about how to make a bee friendly garden or a wildlife haven. You could join our community group; take part in a litter pick or how about sponsoring a hanging basket as a present for the person in your life who loves flowers?
Earlier this month, Farnham retailers celebrated Independents’ Day. The town has a fantastic range of independent retailers who offer choice, knowledge and a personal service. If you are looking for a special present or want to treat yourself, why not take a couple of hours to explore what’s on offer from Farnham’s independents.
Every year we award community grants totalling £54,000. Two organisations we have supported include Farnham Brass Band who received £1,000 to buy a three quarter size tuba and Farnham Cricket Club who have been awarded £2,000 for essential pavilion roof repairs.
