Who we are

The Bungalow is a local community resource centre based on the Sandy Hill estate in Farnham, Waverley. Originally the caretaker’s bungalow, the old building provided a base where community groups and individuals could meet and learn new skills, meet new friends and feel part of the community.

How we got here

Due to the popularity of the Bungalow and the demand on space it became necessary to provide a larger community building. In 2008 plans were developed to replace the old building with a brand new Bungalow in order to extend the range of activities and facilities it offers to the local community.

Who helped us

What you see today was made possible by funding from key partners such as Surrey County Council, Waverley Borough Council, Veolia Environmental Trust, Farnham Town Council, the Residents Association of Sandy Hill and First Wessex Housing Group.



Who runs The Bungalow?

The Bungalow is managed by the Sandy Hill Community Bungalow Trust, a charitable organisation established in 2009 made up of local stakeholders and residents which aims to promote, support and develop activities for families and young people in the Upper Hale area of Farnham.
