Petition Nears 200 to make Westbury Inn a Community Asset

As of 14 March the Petition to make Westbury Inn an ‘Asset of Community Value’ stood at 179 signatures. If the Parish Council can persuade Mendip District Council to accept the Petition’s objective it would ensure that the Pub could not be closed without the community being given six months to mount a purchase offer. If you haven’t signed yet, the petition is still open with copies at both the Pub and the Village Shop, and on the Parish Council’s Facebook Page
