Mr Whitfield will give a short presentation on the fascinating history of the local Victoria Reservoir which is situated on the A287 Frensham Road at the Ridgeway traffic lights which supplies water to the Farnham area. He will also explain the modern day treatment applied  to keep our drinking water safe.

New Village Signs

Two new village signs were erected at the end of January. They are both located on the A287 Frensham Road, one as you head south just past the entrance to Middle Bourne Lane. The other is heading north just before the entrance to Frensham Vale. Thanks to all of those who were involved in this project. I think you'll agree the signs look excellent.
