Monday 8 May 

Try volunteering and get involved in local initiatives at The Big Help Out. 

We are holding a special day of activity which will include a number of environmental activities around Gostrey Meadow. 

You can take part in: 

  • a litter pick 
  • weeding and planting 
  • creating a ‘dead hedge’ by the old bowling green to support biodiversity. 

The local Sea Cadets, Scouts, The Farnham Biodiversity Group, schools, other community groups and businesses such as Waitrose are supporting the event but there is time for other groups to get involved too.
