Farnham’s sky lights up for Christmas

Farnham people took to social media on Saturday to show their appreciation for Farnham Town Council’s Beacons of Light show. 

Introduced as an alternative to the traditional town centre Christmas lights switch-on, Farnham Town Council arranged for eight beams of light to connect Farnham by sweeping across the sky above Badshot Lea, Weybourne, Upper Hale, Rowledge, Wrecclesham, The Bourne, Farnham Castle and Central Farnham.

Councillor Alan Earwaker, Lead Member for Tourism and Events said: “This year we felt it was more important than ever before to hold an event which connected people to their community and that could be enjoyed from the safety of their home. 

“The weather was horrendous on Saturday night, but this failed to dampen people’s spirits and judging by the feedback, I think the Beacons of Light show was a great success. I would like to thank Kidd Rapinet for being our Christmas in Farnham Corporate sponsor and to Abbeyfield for being our Gold sponsor. Their support made it possible to bring some early Christmas cheer to Farnham.”

Beacons of Light coincided with the switching on of the Christmas lights in Farnham town centre and surrounding villages.
