Brightwells Gostrey Centre (Farnham)
Sending our warmest and well wishes to you all during this extremely difficult time. Whilst our social centre has sadly closed for the time being, we are still very much here for the older community of Farnham. We have continued to extend our daily meal service, offering a freshly cooked meal at lunch time with the option of a frozen meal for the evening, as well as afternoon tea.
Brightwells Gostrey has been in the heart of the community for older people for over 30 years. We provide a warm and friendly environment for senior citizens to meet. Offering a variety of vital activities and services including freshly cooked meals, daily activities, craft workshops, grandparent and toddler groups, outings and much more. We are proud to bring a sense of belonging, companionship, fun and enjoyment to those in their golden years.
We also provide a Community Meal Service, ensuring those who need it, regularly receive a nutritious freshly cooked meal and pudding. All dishes are prepared from scratch in our kitchen. However, it is far more than just a meal we are delivering. Our team of volunteers are a friendly face to many, helping to reduce social isolation, something which has become so much more important in the recent months.

RSPCA Guildford and Epsom Branch
At this time all large gatherings are still banned, and so we are pausing all fundraising activities we had planned.
In addition we are currently unable to train new home visitors or visit the homes of potential fosterers.
This is an incredibly difficult time for us across the RSPCA, and we appreciate your ongoing support and understanding. We are very fortunate to have a loyal and caring volunteer team, and we thank you for all the time and energy you donate to helping animals.
The charitable objectives of the RSPCA are to promote kindness and prevent or suppress cruelty to animals by all lawful means.
The branch promotes animal welfare in the local area primarily through veterinary assistance, neutering and re-homing. We run a voucher scheme which assists local people with veterinary bills for treatment and neutering. It also helps to control dog and cat populations, thereby promoting responsible pet ownership.
The branch assists the RSPCA animal centres, mainly Millbrook and South Godstone, with re-homing unwanted and abused animals by home-visiting. We also pay for veterinary treatment of stray animals and wildlife attended to by the Inspectorate in our branch area.
The RSPCA provides advice for owners on animal care. It also helps animals brought to us for rehoming because their owners are unable or unwilling to keep them. Ill treated or injured animals are cared for by the Society. The public benefits from knowing that we can intervene to assist animals in need.
We have a website to raise awareness of the activities of the branch and to help members get more involved. We provide volunteering opportunities for those who wish to support our work, including trusteeship, fundraising and home visiting. This benefits local people and companies by providing the possibility of doing work which is compassionate and rewarding.
We also have to fundraise to enable us to continue with our charitable work. The RSPCA receives no government or lottery funding.

West Horsley Place Trust
West Horsley Place is a Grade I listed mediaeval manor house and estate of great beauty and historic significance. The manor house dates from 1425, though there has been a building on site since Saxon times. Our recent work to conserve and maintain the house has made our principal rooms safe and comfortable for public access, but the house remains on Historic England's Heritage at Risk Register.
The West Horsley Place Trust aims to bring the house, gardens, 380-acre estate and eight Grade II listed outbuildings back into good repair and to improve people's wellbeing through art, culture, heritage & nature.
We will give people freedom to explore and discover, to create stories and become part of ours.
- To bring about a quiet revolution in the way an historic house and estate is managed
- To be a place that improves people’s wellbeing through culture, heritage and nature
- To be sustainable, financially, environmentally and socially
- To be a catalyst for creativity
- To conserve the listed buildings in our care so that they are no longer on the Historic England ‘at risk’ register
- To provide learning and engagement opportunities in culture, heritage and nature
- To broaden our audience by being welcoming, inclusive and accessible
- To enhance the natural landscape through increasing biodiversity and habitat connectivity
