Farnham Town Council is seeking nominations for the prestigious Services to Farnham Awards.

The Awards are kindly sponsored by Sir Ray Tindle of the Tindle News Group and are presented to those who have served the community and people of Farnham. The Services to Farnham Awards are open to anyone and nominations are welcome from local organisations and/or members of the public.

Councillor Paddy Blagden, Mayor of Farnham, says: “I never cease to be amazed at the enormous number of volunteer organisations that exist in Farnham and its villages, and make the whole a marvellous place to live. They represent a spirit of helpfulness, cheerfulness and dedication, and their efforts underpin many of the facilities including support care of the elderly, sport of all kinds and for all ages, and elements of the fabric of our town like the library and Museum. I am truly grateful for their efforts.

“I am also grateful for organisations such as the Farnham Lions, Hedgehogs and Rotary Club, which provide essential supporting funding for the volunteers. Farnham is a wonderful town, but without the volunteers and their supporters it would almost collapse. My thanks and congratulations to all of them.”

Farnham Town Council wants to hear about people who provide an outstanding or crucial service to the community or the people of Farnham. Awards are prioritised for their impact on the community and the length of time the service has been provided.

Download a nomination form. Completed forms need to be returned to Farnham Town Council by Monday 6 January 2014.

A small panel of people will consider the nominations and put forward their winning selections to a meeting of the Full Council at the end of January. The winners will be invited to receive their awards at a special ceremony in February.
