Following the lockdowns, which led to the establishment of a service for the village managed by a team of volunteers and overseen by the Wheathampstead Community Group (WCG), the Friends are working with WCG to establish a village service. Both our visiting group and that provided by the WCG believe that this will lead to a better and clearer provision for our village post-lockdown.

We are seeking volunteers and will provide sessions on some of the challenges that might be faced. We have just, for example, completed a training session on Bereavement run by Rennie Grove Hospice. If interested please contact Christine Anstice,, who is our visiting co-ordinator.

The friends are a group of trained volunteers, who will

  • Provide help without prejudice
  • Visit only with your agreement and in strict confidentiality
  • Listen to your concerns and offer support and assistance
  • Introduce you to other sources of specific help if appropriate
  • Have the knowledge of, and access to, resources which may have the answers to your needs

If you would like a visit, or know someone who would, please fill in the details on the Referral Form.
