Pain Farm Fund – applications now open

Applications are now open for the Pain Farm Fund.

In 1932, George Pain made a will bequeathing the 210 acre property known as the Pain Farm to the then Borough Council (now the SWDC). Under provisions of the Charitable Trust Act 1957 in February 1966 the Court directed:

“That the income from the Trust Lands should be used, in maintaining and improving the borough’s parks, sports grounds, camping ground, swimming baths, providing equipping and maintaining sports facilities and a children’s playground in such manner and in such proportion as the Council may from time to time decide.”

Any funding distribution from the Pain Farm must be of benefit to the residents of Martinborough.

Pain Farm Fund applications close on 29 February 2024 and will be considered at the following Martinborough Community Board meeting. 

Forms and guidance are available from the SWDC libraries, Council reception in Martinborough or on the website at
