      Fairfield Trust History

        Fairfield Trust was originally founded in 1975 by Ruth and Ken Hester, after inheriting a farm from Ruth’s father. With support from Wiltshire County Council, Fairfield was established as a Rural Training Unit. It started with just a handful of students who were taught agriculture and horticulture primarily. 

        Over the next 40+ years, the site and size of the charity grew exponentially, catering for a variety of needs for young adults with special educational needs across Wiltshire and beyond.  

        Fairfield Trust now incorporates the main college campus in Dilton Marsh, Fairfield Animal Centre in Southwick near Trowbridge, and The Weavers Pub in Dilton Marsh also. The Trust also offers a variety of services to those in the local community in the form of Fairfield’s Young People’s Services.
