Our Future Plans
Epsom RDA has a long waiting list of riders. Adults and children who miss out on the opportunity of riding with us and enjoy the benefits riding brings to their health and wellbeing. To tackle this challenge a proposal for a new indoor school has been developed.
A preferred design has been reached, taking into account the views expressed on how it will look, how it can be used and the impact on our work after a two week consultation period in 2019 with volunteers, riders, and parents/carers.
The planning application has been granted. We are committed to start building once we have the funding in place to finance the construction and running of the new facility.
Your Fund Surrey
Epsom RDA is appealing for funding from “Your Fund Surrey”, the Surrey Community Projects Fund launched by Surrey County Council. Despite the challenges of the last year Epsom RDA is planning for the future. We had hoped to start building a new indoor riding school during 2020, but the arrival of COVID 19 has slowed progress.
This is largely due to a number of grant making bodies who had expressed interest in the project suspending their funding programmes. However, Your Fund Surrey is investing in exciting, inspiring and ‘place-changing’ projects that will deliver a positive benefit to local people. We would love it if you could help us get the funding. It’s easy and quick to support us by voting on the Your Fund Surrey Interactive Map and clicking on the “Agree” button.
