Our achievements

We started as VEG in 2019 to fill a vacuum left by cuts in Worcester City Council staff. We became WEG in 2020 due to requests to help in other parts of the city. Until 2023 we were run entirely by volunteers. We have a steering group of professional ecologists and knowledgeable naturalists working with us.
