Fish Saltus have long been keen supporters of local community sport in and around Farnham and are proud Principal Partners of the Farnham Rugby Club and of the Bourne Blades FC – for whom our very own founder and MD Ian “Shep” Colley graced the midfield in the Vets team for many years!

Both clubs are very significant set-ups now, with the Farnham RUFC boasting amazing facilities at Monkton Lane and running 28 teams, from Under 5s upwards, all sporting the original Fish Financial logo on their shirts, which were produced prior to the merger with Saltus and the rebranding of the business to Fish Saltus.

The Bourne Blades Football Club now operates no less than 32 teams, training and playing at a variety of local venues, including the Bourne Green, Weydon School, Farnham College and Waverley Abbey School. Even if you don’t have a direct connection with the club, most people local to Farnham will do doubt be used to seeing distinctive green and white striped kits – and the Fish Saltus logo also features prominently on the football jackets which also largely serve as school coats for many of the boys and girls in the area!
