Wetherby is a vibrant market town
with a population of about 10,772 people. Many of these residents are involved
in some way, in voluntary work, delivering activities and support to all
sections of our community. These range from churches to sports clubs and
associations, Scouting and Guiding troups, Lions and Rotary club members,
support groups for the elderly, especially WiSE, groups to assist those who are
bereaved, isolated or disadvantaged; to our excellent U3A (University of the
Third Age), Wetherby Town Council itself, Wetherby in Bloom, the Welcome to
Wetherby team, Wetherby Twinning Association, Wetherby and District Foodbank
and Friends of Sandringham Park, to name but a few!
None of these groups would exist without the dedication of local people who care passionately about our town. Each group has a team of volunteers who are keen to help people achieve their potential, have an interest in improving our local environment and building a compassionate and inclusive community here in Wetherby.
