News from Westbury

WESTBURY CHURCH

Plant Sale – A big thank you to everyone who supported the recent Plant Sale – we made £337.49 towards the upkeep of the Church.  We were very lucky with the weather and it was great to see old and new friends partaking of coffee and delicious cakes, and of course, buying a wide selection of plants!  Thank you.

 

WESTBURY PARISH COUNCIL

Meetings- The next meetings will be held at Westbury Village Hall on Wednesday 4th July and Wednesday 12th September. All welcome to attend. 

Dog owners - Please be respectful and keep dogs on leads at all times when visiting or walking through the Church gardens. 

Children’s Playpark- Work has been started to update the playpark. More information will be available via the village email system -this is well worth signing up to if you haven’t done so already. 

Bucks County Council - The county council has improved its online portal and has recently launched a defect reporting tool - ‘Fix my street’ where anyone can report various issues including pot holes, grit bins and fly-tipping. The clerk will send information out via the village email system and links will be available on the village website www.westburyvillage.co.uk

Weeds- Bucks County Council no longer treats weeds. To keep on top of this problem, if you are able to, please try to keep the front of your homes free of weeds. The parish council will arrange a village clean-up in the worst areas to pull them up as this seems to have more effect than spraying them.

In the few weeks since Hellen became Manager, we have gone on from strength to strength. She is full of ideas and has successfully renewed the Volunteers & Committees enthusiasm. We have a new Menu and are always keen for suggestions and requests for both the Shop & Cafe. 

The knitting group meet fortnightly on a ‪Thursday afternoon & are encouraging people to join the Brackley poppy initiative. 

The Cafe & Shop stay open on a Friday until ‪7.30pm, providing Pizzas for the junior Cricketers attending training sessions. It also provides a place for the parents to relax & chat indoors, or outdoors in our seating area overlooking the cricket pitch.

On July 26th we are planning a Fashion Show. Details will be on Facebook or you can visit or phone the Shop/Cafe.

We will provide a Cake stall again for the Village Festival in September. This was a huge success in 2017 and we hope to repeat that this year. (Cake donations will be gratefully received on the day).
