The Wheathampstead Community Group (WCG)  has been serving the village of Wheathampstead since 1966. WCG is a registered charity that aims to provide help and support to any resident of the village.

  • We organise transport for people who cannot get to hospital, doctors appointments or collect prescriptions.
  • We have a Thursday Club which provides companionship and support for residents who are aged over 60 and unable to access other activities without assistance, or need care from a carer or family member.
  • We help people in financial difficulty where there is a specific need,  e.g. grocery vouchers, necessary white goods, etc.
  • 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.
  • We fund specific projects, such as putting a defibrillator in the high-street for emergency use, funding some equipment for the new community Chapel Gym, and providing English language training for Ukrainian refugees being hosted in Wheathampstead.
