Farnham Town Council is seeking volunteers who love being outside and want to help look after Farnham’s nature. 

The Farnham in Bloom Community Day on Saturday, March 23, from 10am to 3pm at Gostrey Meadow, marks the start of spring and the launch of the 2024 Farnham in Bloom campaign, supported by gold sponsor The Patio Blackspot Removal Company and Silver sponsor Zenzero.

Volunteers will be able to take part in a variety of activities and challenges such as town centre litter picks, weeding, sowing seeds, planting up flower beds in Gostrey Meadow, bug house building, and helping to develop a wildlife area. 

Local environmental and conservation groups will be on hand to explain what they do and the opportunities they have for local people to get involved.

There will also be live music and refreshments and a chance to meet animals from Mill Cottage Farm Experience.

Bloomin’ help clean up in Hale too!

People are also invited to roll up their sleeves and get down to Hale Cemetery this Saturday (March 9) for a community clear-up with Farnham in Bloom.

Councillor Matthew Brown said: “We are looking for a few volunteers to help spruce up the award-winning cemetery. Tasks will range from litter picking and general clearing to tree planting.”

The event is suitable for families and all equipment and refreshments will be provided. The clear-up takes place between 10am and midday. Just turn up!
