Memorial Hall signage showing fallen soldiers signs

Published Friday, 9 November 2018

The hoarding has come down at the newly refurbished Memorial Hall, Farnham to proudly display the silhouettes of five fallen soldiers for Remembrance Sunday.

The unveiling of this fitting tribute comes at a poignant time as the Hall was built in memory of five members of staff from Farnham United Breweries who lost their lives serving their country in the First World War.

The stunning building was built by the owner of Farnham United Breweries in 1920 and opened in 1921 in memory of his fallen employees, Private George William Ayres, Private Mark William George Glazier, Charles Thomas Hawkins, Frederick Charles Mansey and John Baden-Powell Wallace.

As a mark of respect, all of the rooms for hire are named after the fallen soldiers and include activity rooms, a health and wellbeing suite, hair salon, therapy room, meeting room, classrooms, office space, a new kitchen, dining area and sunny terrace overlooking the football pitch, as well as a refurbished main hall, ideal for larger parties or weddings.
