WESTBURY COMMUNITY SHOP & CAFÉ

The Shop & Café have now invested in some new signs to put on the roadside, making us easier to be seen. We are also on Google Maps as a place to stop for a bite to eat. Both these have already proved to be effective. 

We held a Macmillan Coffee Morning on Friday 28th September and were delighted to raise £239.89. A big thank you to those who provided some delicious cakes and to those who helped us raise money for such a fantastic cause. 

The Shop and Café are run by an enthusiastic Manager, Hellen, ably assisted by Emily. We also have great Volunteers that give a few hours of their time to help in whatever way suits them. They help to enable us to stay open 6 days a week, for which we are very grateful. If you feel you have an hour or 2 a week or month then please get in touch.

We look forward to seeing you when you visit us. 

Phone. 01280 841775. We are also on Facebook & Instagram.
