The Lambourn Trainers Association was established in 1989 to promote the many exceptional and varied training facilities available to new owners and those already involved in racehorse ownership.
Since its inception well over 1.5 million pounds has been raised and this has been used for the benefit of racing staff employed in the Lambourn Valley.
The main expenditure has been on 18 houses which have been built on land at Francome Fields in Lambourn. This land was generously sold to us by John Francome. They are a mixture of 2 and 3 bed roomed houses.
The principal fund raising event is the annual Lambourn Open Day, held always on Good Friday.
The Lambourn Valley Housing Trust was formed in 1995 and is a Registered Charity. It oversees the whole funding operation.
Its responsibility is the welfare of the Stable Staff – working or retired – in Lambourn, The Valley of The Racehorse.
Peter Walwyn, Chairman of the Lambourn Valley Trainers Association said: "There are many reasons for a successful yard and one of the most important is the staff. They are not as richly rewarded as we would like and we are always likely to lose key trained lads and lasses when they have just married. Quite rightly they want a home of their own together, but cannot afford to rent anything suitable."
