We have pest control contracts in many private houses as well as the ‘normal’ commercial food related premises. Owners of private houses want a pest control person from a pest control technician that they know & trust. PEST UK provide this; all our pest control technicians are CRB checked and hold the highest pest control qualification as well as having ongoing pest control training within the PROMPT/BASIS scheme. A contract is looked after by one pest control technician, it is his or her contract & visits are only carried out by other pest control technicians in the absence of the regular pest technician & then we usually give the customer a choice. This way our customers only have some one they know.
Farnham is a market town with many shops located along the main thoroughfare running through West Street, The Borough and East Street. The town has a significant number of independent retailers, some of which have been in business since the nineteenth century. This includes- Rangers Furnishing Stores (est. 1895), Elphicks department store (est. 1881) and Pullingers (est. 1850). The latter evolved into the Pullingers Art Shop chain and is considered to be Farnham’s oldest surviving business. There are also branches of national retailers. Large garden centres exist nearby at Holt Pound, Frensham and Badshot Lea. Castle Street’s market stalls have been replaced by semi-permanent style buildings. Every month a farmers’ market is held once a month in the central car park where produce from farms in Farnham and the surrounding area is sold. The Farnham Maltings hosts a monthly market selling arts, crafts, antiques and bric-a-brac with specialist fairs and festivals held there on a less regular basis.
The library is housed in the historic Vernon House at which King Charles I slept on his way to his trial and execution in London in 1649, commemorated by a plaque on the buildings wall. The library features public gardens with sculptures provided by local artists and UCA students.
The towns Museum is located at Willmer House, an eighteenth-century [4 town house with a decorative brickwork façade in West Street. It houses an extensive collection of artefacts spanning several periods of the town’s history and prehistory. The museum was founded in 1961 to provide the Farnham community with a collection dedicated to the history of the local area in an elegant Grade I listed Georgian townhouse which still retains many original features, including a walled garden. The displays include items from a large and eclectic collection; from archaeological artefacts to nationally important artworks by local artists and an extensive costume collection.
Farnham is claimed to have been settled by hunters from the Palaeolithic or stone age era, there is evidence of tools and prehistoric animal bones found together in deep gravel pits. The first known settlement, a collection of pit dwellings, was dated as being from around 7,000 years ago. The numbers of those living in the area continued to grow through the Bronze Age, evidence for this is the triple barrow at Elstead and many other barrows in the area. In Roman times the area became a well known pottery centre due to the supply of gault clay, oak woodlands and the nearby roman road from Silchester to Chichester. In the 17th Century Farnham was a successful market town with Wheat being very prosperous in the area and then was turned to hops, a key ingredient in beer. Other new industries included greenware pottery, wool and cloth.
Farnham is the western starting point of the North Downs Way National Trail, a long distance footpath opened in 1978. The trail runs from Farnham to Dover, past Guildford, Otford and Rochester to name a few.
