A huge welcome to Nory, the very first helper to join experienced gardeners - John & Alan - in our community garden today.
She certainly enjoyed being outdoors, digging in the soil, getting dirty, creating things and planting her very own 'Dwarf Beans' that she will be able to watch grow in the weeks to come!
Children can learn new skills, have fun, play and develop self-confidence by spending time in the garden, tending plants and growing their own food... hopefully Nory will be the first of many 'small people' to come along to our weekly gardening sessions on Tuesday afternoons!
Community Garden 27th April 2021.
Congratulations to Weybourne & Hale Rainbows, who provide a fun and exciting programme for girls aged five to seven; it's all about learning by doing!
Rainbows were one of the first groups to return to the Centre on the 19th April, shortly after lockdown began to ease.
Kirsty, their very own 'Buttercup' recently said its been great … we have managed to grow both the units so we are both now full with a total of 36 girls and strong waiting lists as well
Rainbows are loving being back !!!
Appeal from Catherine Powell of North Farnham Voice... as the world starts to open I would like to encourage you to write in to the Farnham Herald letters page with your hopes and ambitions for what comes next.
It would be good to hear from as many of you as possible about how we ensure that some good comes from the disruption of the past year.
The Parish of Badshot Lea and Hale announce, this year’s Farnham Flower Festival will celebrate the theme of Hope and Joy, and will once more be held online over the weekend of May 15 and 16th. Further details available on their website.

Pictures and videos should be sent to email@example.com to arrive by May 9th.
This past year has been very different for us all but especially for Waverley’s Mayor, Councillor Penny Marriott.
Since becoming Mayor last June 2020, Waverley has been in one stage or another of restrictions and therefore the normal work of being a Mayor has been very much a ‘virtual’ experience.
As it is the custom to support chosen charities within the borough the Mayor, hoping to raise much needed funds for Waverley Home Start, Farnham and District Sea Cadets and 40 Degreez has taken on the challenge of walking 100 miles, swimming 100 lengths plus learning to ride a bike 100 metres
This amazing lady is one of our Upper Hale Waverley Borough Councillors. What an inspiration!!
Farnham Herald - 29th April announces...'there’s light at the end of the tunnel for the Mayor as she gets set to complete her ‘100+100+100’ charity challenge to walk 100 miles, swim a 100 lengths plus ride a bike 100 metres - all to raise funds for three charities in Waverley'.

Thank you 'The Men in Sheds team'. A group run as a collaborative project by the Farnham Maltings and space2grow in Farnham.
They recently completed a woodworking project - a storage unit, hand crafted from unwanted decking, which otherwise would have been thrown away - for our Fridge and Cupboard.
This project is particularly special as both space2grow and Hale Community Centre are the Farnham Mayor's chosen charities of the year, projects bringing communities together!

Farnham Men in Sheds build storage units for Hale’s food waste reduction scheme
Last week Farnham Men in Sheds put the finishing touches to their project to increase the capacity of the Hale Community Fridge and Cupboard food waste reduction scheme.
Farnham Men in Sheds is a collaboration between Farnham Maltings and space2grow and carries out woodworking projects for the local community.
The cupboard was constructed from recycled wood, donated by a volunteer at Hale Community Centre who was removing decking from her garden. The men buffed up and cut down the wood to make the storage units, as well as adding features to ensure they met food and hygiene standards.

Farnham Herald 8th April 21 - News from Local Clubs - Pages 32/33...
Our lives have been serverely limited during 2020, but even so some activities were able to take place.
One was the Farnham Pilgrim Marathon in September, which took place under strict Covid-safe rules and brought a lot of joy to many runners.
It also enabled the clubs to raise some funds, and these are now being distributed to local charities, including Hale Community Centre - Thank you!.
