Another Square Tea Party

Westbury’s social life continues to thrive!

For the ninth year running, residents of The Square and houses close by held their annual Bank Holiday Tea Party on Sunday 27th August.

It’s a very informal event, with people bringing out garden chairs and tables, and providing a wide range of sandwiches, scones, and cakes to share around.

Lively conversation and laughter echoed around The Square, so it’s clear that everyone had an enjoyable afternoon.

Roll on Bank Holiday 2018!
