Wheathampstead Community Group

The WCG has been serving the village of Wheathampstead and surrounding areas for 45 years. WCG is a registered charity that aims to provide help and support to any resident of the village. David Johnston is the current Chairman.

  • We organise transport for people who cannot get to hospital, doctors appointments or collect prescriptions
  • We provide an Internet Cafe at the The Library every Tuesday morning (currently suspended due to Covid-19)
  • We help people in financial difficulty where there is a specific need,  e.g. groceries vouchers, school uniform
  • We can provide practical help e.g. DIY or gardening for those unable to cope with it themselves
  • We run a Companionship network for people who are lonely and want a regular visit or phone call from a friendly volunteer
  • We arrange lunch at The Bull for individuals over the age of 75 and living alone
  • We liaise with other voluntary and statutory agencies and lobby on specific issues affecting Wheathampstead residents.
  • We are a visible presence within the Wheathampstead Parish and we are all volunteers.
