The Mayor of Farnham, Councillor John Ward has held a reception to offer his thanks to the volunteers who organised the highly successful Heritage Open Days in September.

Farnham’s annual Heritage Open Days events are organised by a small group of volunteers from the Farnham Society and supported by Farnham Town Council.

The volunteers organised a programme which included guided walks, exhibitions, performances and an opportunity to see inside some of Farnham’s finest buildings.

Commenting, Councillor John Ward said: “I really do believe that this year’s Heritage Open Days programme was bigger and better than ever before. Over four beautifully sunny days in September, the public had the pleasure of being able to see behind the doors of some of Farnham’s most iconic buildings.

“As well as being able to enjoy the town’s splendid architectural heritage and tradition of arts and crafts, there were also opportunities to take part in a number of guided walks. The walks were fantastic and helped people to open their eyes to what is around them. When you are busy going about your day-to-day business, it is easy to forget to pause, look around and appreciate the beauty of Farnham. Heritage Open Days have certainly helped me to rediscover Farnham. I would like to thank the property owners who kindly agreed to take part and the dedicated group of volunteers who worked tirelessly to make the event such a success.”

Heritage Open Days 2017 will take place from Thursday 7 to Sunday 10 September. A full guide to what’s on will be available at www.farnham.gov.uk.
