DOG FOULING- It is an offence for dog owners to fail to clear up after their dogs and being unaware that your dog has fouled or not having a suitable means of clearing up after your dog is no excuse. There are 7 dog waste bins in Westbury.

Please be aware that many homes in Westbury are fitted with CCTV and reports of irresponsible dog owners can be filed online with AVDC.

WESTBURY COMMUNITY SHOP & CAFE

September started with a bang, with a very busy Monday before school started. Never has the car park & play area been so busy on a weekday. Hellen & Hazel managed brilliantly, coping with and providing for the many customers who came to enjoy the beautiful sunny day.

Fifteen cyclists from the ambulance service were celebrating the Chief Executive's 50th  birthday. Hellen opened the Cafe on the Sunday as a special request for people who do amazing work. 

For enquiries about the Shop & Cafe please phone 01280 841775. Or find us on Facebook & we will get back to you as soon as possible.

THE CAFE SOCIETY had a very interesting talk on the 'Fall of the House of Ussher', by local Historian, Ed Grimsdale. It was about local history, focussing on Westbury. 

For future events & joining the Cafe Society contact Sue Lucas on 01280 706190 or Jacky Owen on 01280 704667. Or email cafesociety.westbury@gmail.com.
