There were happy smiling faces all around on Sunday as people took part in the start of Farnham’s summer programme of events which is sponsored by Kidd Rapinet. 

Visitors were treated to a total of three separate open-air events which included The Sustainability Festival, an art and craft market in West Street and the monthly farmers’ market. 

The Sustainability Festival attracted a steady flow of people who had pre-booked their two-hour entry pass. They enjoyed talks on a variety of topics, live music and vegan food which was a sell-out success. 

The Mayor of Farnham, Councillor Alan Earwaker attended the Sustainability Festival and said: “The format for the festival worked really well. The stalls were laid out to give people plenty of space to circulate and the pre-booking requirement meant it felt safe and not too crowded. 

“Around 1,000 people came to the festival and many of them commented on how nice it was to be able to wander between the three events.”

The Sustainability Festival was organised by Farnham Town Council in partnership with Farnham Community Farm and the Hedgehogs helped with marshalling. Proceeds from the festival will go towards Farnham Community Farm which is a not-for-profit community supported agriculture scheme.
