BBC BREAKFAST presenter Tim Muffett and cameraman Mark Slemmings, from Upper Hale, recorded a segment on hanging baskets in Victoria Garden, Farnham on Friday, July 26.

Tim spoke to volunteers from the Bloomin’ Friends volunteer group about how to help flowers thrive despite the hot conditions, for three live segments on the flagship BBC One breakfast show at 6.50am, 7.50am and 8.50am.

It comes ahead of Britain in Bloom judging day on July 31, when Farnham Town Council and the team of volunteers who are behind the year-round effort to transform communities through gardening will proudly share their hard work with the judges of the RHS contest.

The visit next Wednesday will begin with a 15-minute presentation giving an insight into how Farnham in Bloom touches the lives of the community, followed by a tour of the town centre where judges will be introduced to projects such as space2grow, which is for people of all ages to improve their mental health and wellbeing, and Bishop’s Meadow, which was bought by the community for the community.

The judges will also meet many of the businesses who have sponsored Farnham in Bloom and volunteers who will show them how the 15,500 hours they have contributed in 2019 have made Farnham a cleaner and greener place to live and visit.

In the days leading up to judging, Farnham Town Council is appealing to everybody to help make sure the town looks its best by picking up and taking home litter, reporting graffiti, and for businesses to ensure the area outside their premises is clean and tidy.
