Our History

The Elisabeth Curtis Centre was officially opened on 19th April 1983 by HRH The Princess Royal, President of the Riding fothe Disabled Association (RDA)

The Centre was named after Mrs Elisabeth Curtis who, as Chairman of the Eastern Region RDA, had been closely involved with the development of riding at Bromham Hospital. It was hoped that the Riding Centre would be a fitting memorial to all her work for the RDA.  

However, the story started several years before that, in August 1975. Check out our history timeline page to see the story.
