Friends of the Victoria Gardens

The Victoria Garden is a ‘secret garden’ created on the site of the former Victorian open-air swimming baths in Farnham. The Friends group was launched in 1995 to help raise funds for the project and to ensure a wide involvement of the community. The Friends run plant sales, flag days, garden parties, bridge drives and quiz evenings – all great fun for those participating. The Friends also provide a group of dedicated volunteer gardeners who keep the garden in the splendid state so admired by visitors. There are now well over 100 friends and new members are always welcome.

For general enquiries please email secretary@farnhamvictoriagarden.org.
