Better Wetherby


Foodbank wish list, September

Foodbank Appeal

The Wetherby & District Foodbank has been experiencing unprecedented need for almost a year and this has been coupled with a relative decline in donations. Our stocks of food and hygiene essentials are very depleted.

Urgent needs can be seen in the image on the left (click to enlarge).

To find out how you can donate to the Foodbank, click here, or go to Wetherby & District Foodbank.

Community Green Group; Shaping the Future

7:30pm, Tuesday, October 3, at Boston Spa Methodist Church

This is an opportunity to have your say on important matters in our community (Boston Spa, Wetherby and surrounding villages).

We want to hear your thoughts on the following important topics:

  • ENERGY: Energy costs may continue to be volatile. How can households become more energy independent? Making the most of cheaper, local, sustainable energy, on an individual and community basis.
  • WASTE: In the UK, we waste 38million wheelie bins of edible food each year. And £140million of used but wearable clothing also goes to landfill each year. What else do we buy once and never use again? How can we reduce waste as a community?
  • TRAVEL:The average UK car journey is just 8.4miles. Our streets become more congested and polluted. How can we be more efficient as a community with our journeys?
  • USE OF GREEN SPACE: How can we share our green spaces and gardens, as a community, to grow more stuff?

Please come and have your say, about a better future we can help create here in Boston Spa and surrounding villages.

Prisons Week 2023 header

Prisons Week 2023 - Look up

8-14th October

This year's Prisons Week has the intriguing title 'Look up', and is based around Psalm 19:1 "The heavens declare the glory of God..."

During the week we are invited to pray for people involved in the Prison Service, either as employees, volunteers, inmates, or others who have been affected by crime.

This leaflet gives a prayer for each day of Prisons Week, and while you're on your knees (whether literally or metaphorically), do remember the YOI Wetherby and Wealdstone Prison in your prayers.

And if you're not quite sure what Prisons Week is about, have a look at this short video - you won't be disappointed, we promise.
