All Change

We are sad to say that our CEO is on the move to pastures new and we all wish her well in her new home. We look forward to introducing our new CEO very shortly

We also wish to welcome Carol Lloyd as our new Chair of Trustees and  Rachel Metcalfe as our new Macmillan Rural Health Outreach Coordinator.

The charity has recently relocated its office space to the Agricultural Business Centre in Bakewell .

The late Mr Bill Gregory was influential in developing the idea for the charity in 2004 by offering to house the Centre on his farm in a converted Old Stable Block.

The charity has gone from strength to strength over the years with the continued support and kindness of the Gregory family who have supplied a wonderful rural base for the Centre, rent free, for over 13 years.

We are enjoying being amongst the farming community especially on busy market days

please feel free to find us for a chat
