Mike Abbott, Trustee of Oak Tree Farm for many years passed away late last week.

He had been Treasurer of the charity and was often seen selling raffle tickets at events and Plant Days, not many people avoided buying a raffle ticket.

Our Chairman commented ‘his dry sense of humour and good natured companionship will be greatly missed’.

We remember Mike warmly and our thoughts are very much with all his family and friends.

Tony Browne, long time stalwart of Oak Tree Farm sadly passed away earlier this week.

Tony was in the founding group of Marshlands School parents in the late 80’s who set up the charity, Oak Tree Farm Rural Project. He held the positions of Vice Chairman and Chairman of Trustees over the years and was made a Patron on his retirement in 2017.

He was a straightforward, practical man and leaves his mark on many of the buildings and facilities at Oak Tree Farm.

Our thoughts are with his son David and his many friends, he is greatly missed but not forgotten.

Oak Tree Farm Rural Project

Oak Tree Farm provides training and supported occupation for adults with learning disabilities, in a rural environment.

The Project provides opportunity, support and encouragement for people to learn new skills and to improve their existing ones, paving  the way into sheltered employment for those people for whom this is appropriate, whilst giving purposeful occupation to others.

Where are we based?

Oak Tree Farm is situated on a 15 acre smallholding near the village of Hilderstone and is part of the Harrowby Estate of Sandon.
