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

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.

The Chairman of The Farming Life Centre, Lyndon Horwell said –

“We want to thank the Gregory family for all their enormous support over the years. The management and trustees feel that now is the right time to relocate our office – being based near to a busy agricultural market centre means we will be more accessible to farmers and the rural community. Our aspiration is to continue to develop our services to assist as many people within our community as possible by providing free and confidential farm business support and health and wellbeing services”


From July 31st The new address will be The Farming Life Centre, Agricultural Business Centre, Agricultural Way, Bakewell, Derbyshire DE45 1AH. The new telephone number is 01629 810903  .
