The Holme Farm Team is delighted to have been awarded 2 Highly Commended Awards at last night’s Runnymede Civic Awards at Foxhills Country Club. Andi Roy, Holme Farm’s Biodiversity & Wildlife Director & Trustee was Highly Commended in the Environmentalist & Climate Change Award category, for his dedication to leading the transformation at Holme Farm, from an abandoned farm, towards an amazingly biodiverse and habitat-rich space.
Holme Farm was also Highly Commended, for the Service to the Community Award. It was received on our behalf by Ronnie Kendall, Founder and Trustee of Holme Farm.
Malcolm Cressey, Chair of the Trustees, said:
“this is a wonderful night for Holme Farm, as a site that has only been open for 10 months, we are delighted to have been twice Highly Commended amongst such auspicious and deserving groups and individuals, this recognises the hard and dedicated work put in by the whole team, all the volunteers and all companies who support us as well as the committee & trustees.”
Andi is so inspirational. He has many volunteers supporting his Weekly Conservation Workshop and we are delighted he is part of the Holme Farm team. Holme Farm is developing a Community Centre on 8 acres of a DEFRA abandoned farm, with the intention of improving people’s mental & physical health. Until we can develop the site and create multiple indoor spaces for arts, crafts and wellbeing, we will be working on creating the Community Allotment, Orchard, Wood Workshop, Biodiversity and Crafting.
Holme Farm already has over 500 volunteers. Click here to join us!
