Holme Farm receives £25,000 endorsement from Runnymede Borough Council

The Holme Farm team is pleased to announce today that Runnymede Borough Council has given its project a significant boost to the tune of £25,000. 

The investment will kick-start the exciting process of conducting surveys of both the land and derelict buildings so that the plans for building renovation and land conversion can begin. The other immediate need will be to create a road, hard standing and a permanent gazebo so that people can access the land safely and have a form of shelter.

“This is a momentous day for Holme Farm as it is absolute endorsement of what can be created here for the community,” said Ronnie Kendall, Chair of the Committee and Trustee for Holme Farm. “We have had to show detailed plans to convince the council of the viability of this project, we have had meetings with many groups across Surrey who wish to benefit from what we create and now it’s time to get to work.”

The Holme Farm team can now start the buying process of essential materials. The building and green space parts of the project will be managed separately from each other so that they can progress at their own pace.

    Good morning
    I work with adults with learning disabilities and there is nothing more they enjoy doing than getting involved. Gardening is a passion. The benefits for them and us are incredible. We are looking at places to volunteer and your project sounds amazing.
    Please can you forward me any further information. Is this something we could look into volunteering .
    Kind regards
