Wild About Wetherby


The ‘Wild About Wetherby’ project has been running since 2012. It is funded by ‘Aspire Community Benefit Society’ and provides a twice weekly service to those attending the Barlyfields Community Centre in Wetherby. Our activities include walks in the countryside, visits to nature reserves, practical conservation work and cycling, as well as outings to museums, parks and gardens, and, of course, spending time at the Open Country Allotment!

The Wild About Wetherby group is a much loved project that has helped many of the people we support to have improved access to and enjoyment from their local area and further afield. Everyone reports that the group is extremely popular and is run by friendly and dedicated staff who provide safe and stimulating outings to adults with learning disabilities.
