We hope that you have noticed all the improvements that have been achieved over the last three years which are making such a significant difference to the appeal of our lovely village.


This, as one of the judges commented in his opening address last year produces a ‘win-win’ situation for us all since it encourages people to choose to live, work and shop in Banstead.


If you would care to assist us in any way you would be most welcome, or perhaps you would like to make a small donation towards our work?


We are entirely self-funding and all the planting, painting and other works that have been carried out up until now have been financed by fundraising or sponsorship.

 

Collection tins for cash donations can be found at Edibles or Mr Snuggs in the High Street. However, should you wish to make a donation online the BViB bank account details are:- We can assure you that every penny you give will go towards our work.
