Between 21st and 28th of May, Farnham will be inviting everyone, of all ages and fitness levels, including wheelchair users, to discover historic Farnham and the beautiful surrounding area through a range of walks.
All walks are led by experts in their field and are free of charge.

Find out about life in the castle, the industrial heritage of the town, public art, how to walk properly and of course the natural landscape surrounding the town.

Booking, on a first come first serve basis, is required for all walks and all walkers are responsible for ensuring they wear the correct clothing.

Please visit the Farnham Walking Festival website to see the full programme of walks and/or register your interest (opens in new window).

We are very pleased to announce Hub Epsom’s reopening on Monday 13 February at 10am in temporary premises at 126 High Street, Epsom KT19 8BT.


This is following the Hub’s closure in December as a result of significant damage caused to its previous location at 131 High Street by a fire that started in an adjacent building.


Please come along any time between 10am and 4pm to our opening event on Monday 13 February, at which you will be able to find out about the support offered by the Hub, and meet some of the organisations that provide drop-in sessions there.


Hub Epsom’s contact details and opening hours are available on the Hubs website here: www.thesurreyhubs.org.uk/epsom


The Guardian Epsom covered our re-opening. You can read the article here: http://bit.ly/2lOpiEv

A few words from our very own Richard Davy, SILC's CEO, on the STAMP App:

“I am hoping I can interest you in a new development that SILC is supporting. The STAMP mobile app aims to provide a link between service providers in Surrey and people who can benefit from the services and support they offer.
The app has been developed to enable service providers to easily share information about their services with potential customers.
I think this new app will provide a great way of offering wider choice to people in Surrey and also provide for a ‘more level playing field’ when it comes to people being aware of the wide range of services and opportunities on offer.”
