Tablers come to club’s assistance

By Farnham Herald in Community News

BOURNE Blades FC have taken delivery of new goalposts with the financial support of Farnham Round Table.

Farnham Round Table has long supported Bourne Blades FC and in turn Bourne Blades have been one of the stalwart supporters of the annual fireworks fiesta and supplies volunteers each November to marshal some of the gates to Farnham Park.

Working together like this means when Bourne Blades needed new goalposts Farnham Round Table was happy to step in and use funds raised from the local community to support the health and well-being of the children of the Bourne and beyond.

Lee Bailey, chairman of Farnham Round Table, said: “Round Table members are always looking for new local good causes to support and the chance to help Bourne Blades continue to support local children was one we couldn’t let pass by.

“Hopefully a future England star will come out of Farnham and we can say we helped.”

Bourne Blades FC have been playing for well over a decade and run children’s teams from under sevens to under 16s, and up to senior and veteran teams.

Playing from the green in Lower Bourne they are central to the sporting life of this area of South Farnham but play away from Hartley Wintney down as far as Petersfield.

More information can be found at Farnham Round Table has been supporting good causes in Farnham for more than 85 years by organising such events as the fireworks and torch-lit procession in November, Santa’s Sleigh door-to-door in December and coming up soon, RideFarnham.

Farnham’s own Charity Bike Ride takes place on the first Sunday in July and this year is going to coincide with a bigger celebration of cycling in the town, so watch out for more news coming soon at

Farnham Round Table is always interested in talking to potential new members to help with the events but also join in the more social side with recent events including a brewery tour, darts trip, monthly pub meetings and deciding which good causes to help.
