The BID Team

Francesco Bartolomei
The Bush Hotel

I have been General Manager at the Bush Hotel in Farnham since October 2021 and I have lived in Farnham since 2011. I am a great believer that the unity of the businesses in a small town like Farnham is the only way to improve our footfall, security and buying power, especially in these difficult times, when I heard that Farnham is proposing to launch a BID, I did not hesitate to agree and invest my time to support it, I really hope that it will be successful.

George Murray
Coffee Diem

My name is George Murray and I am the owner and operator of Coffee Diem and Coffee Diem To Go in Farnham’s Lion and Lamb Yard. I am supporting the Council’s BID Application so that businesses in Farnham can have a direct say in what is important to them, and to enable to allocate funds as they see fit. This I believe will increase engagement and make Farnham an even better place to live and work.
