Welcome to Weobley - The Jewel in the Crown of Herefordshire’s Black and White Villages

W&D Branch of the Herefordshire Wildlife Trust

Herefordshire Wildlife Trust is the largest membership-based wildlife organisation in the area, dedicated to inspiring people about wildlife, acting as a wildlife champion, creating wildlife havens and encouraging sustainable living.  Its vision is for a Herefordshire richer and more diverse in wildlife that is valued, and cared for, by its people to the benefit of all.

The Trust covers the county of Herefordshire and works closely with neighbouring Wildlife Trusts in England and Wales. The Trust is supported by over 3000 local members and manages 54 nature reserves.

As a member of the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts, a federation of 47 Wildlife Trusts covering the whole of the British Isles, they have contact with over 800,000 members and more than 2,300 nature reserves covering 90,000 hectares

The Weobley Branch meet regularly to explore parts of Herefordshire and the region, to hear about what is happening with the countryside and its wildlife and to encourage people to understand and how they can make a contribution to the future.

The Weobley Branch meet on the first Thursday of the month at Hopelands, Weobley Village Hall at 7.30pm.  Usually there is an interesting and accomplished speaker on a subject relevant to wildlife in Herefordshire. Regular visits to sites of interest are planned and organised by the Events Secretary.

A donation of £2 for members and £3 for non-members would be appreciated when attending a meeting.
