A new hedgerow in Farnham Park has been part-funded by Farnham College in celebration of its 50th anniversary. 

The hedgerow project will receive donations of £250 each from Activate Learning, the Farnham Educational Scholarship Trust (FEST), and Sony UK to help enrich the park’s ecosystem.

It has also been supported by Motion, a Guildford-based transport and travel planning consultancy.

Volunteering as part of their corporate Green Week, the team worked alongside park ranger Nick MacFarlane to plant the shrubs and erected a fence to protect against deer.

Director of Farnham College, Neil Shoulder, said: “We are delighted to be included in such an important local project to celebrate our golden anniversary this year, which will leave an ecological legacy to future generations of the community of Farnham.

“Sustainability, and the importance of supporting local biodiversity, is something we actively champion and we are honoured to play a part in this initiative.”
