Wheathampstead Friends

Owing to the death of our founder, Lydia Gladwin,  we urgently need a new Co-ordinator for the Visiting and Bereavement Services  which are currently suspended for new referrals.

If you feel you can help please e-mail the Administrator on  whstdfrds@gmail.com.


If you can suggest any improvements to this site please let us know: Comment.

Wheathampstead is a village noted for its friendliness. But, there are always some in our midst suffering emotional, financial or practical hardships, who need the help of a ‘good neighbour’.

Wheathampstead Friends are a group of committed volunteers with a wide range of experience willing to offer confidential help and support in the following areas:

Bereavement: This service is currently suspended.

Wheathampstead Dementia Wellbeing Group: Coffee morning Mead Hall every first and third Wednesday 10:30 – 12:00.

Food Bank: Hilldyke Community Centre every Thursday 12:30 – 14:30 for anyone in need.

Intergenerational Project: an opportunity for senior members of our community to exchange experiences and enjoy hospitality in our local schools.  Visits are advertised a month in advance.

Visiting:  This service is currently suspended for new referrals.
