Share Farnham community store now open

The new Share Farnham community store opened on Tuesday, May 12 and will be open Monday to Friday, from 10am to noon, at Hale Community Centre, GU9 0JH, and Farnham Maltings, GU9 7QR.

Share Farnham is full of free-to-borrow activities and equipment to help keep you busy and active and has been stocked thanks to the generosity of local people who have donated scores of books, games, puzzles, DVDs, toys and craft activities. Those who dropped off their donations at St George’s Church Hall have accounted for five tables’ worth of items, so thank you so much!

How to borrow

Simply visit the store at either venue between 10am and 12pm Monday to Friday, or if you cannot because you are shielding or self-isolating at home, please call the Farnham Coronavirus Helpline helpline on 01252 745446.

How to donate items

More donations are welcome and can be dropped at the Farnham Maltings or Hale Community Centre during store opening hours.

Lights, craft, action – Christmas kicks off in Badshot Lea

The Christmas lights are being  switched on in Badshot Lea on the evening of Monday November 18th, in preparation for celebrating the coming of God to earth in the form of Jesus, born some 2000 years ago but ever relevant and transformative.

Come and join us at St George’s Church, Badshot Lea, from 4.30-7pm. Not only are the lights going on, there will be a craft fair in the church and, outside from 5-6.30pm, community singing and entertainment by the Sea Cadets and the children of Badshot Lea Infant School.

There are still some craft tables left. If anyone would like one, let us know by email. And come along and do some Christmas shopping, have a sing and get into the Christmas spirit.
