Chair’s update

Feb 23rd 2021


Dear all,


Westbury Parish Council has decided that the need for information about Covid is now neither so regular nor so urgent that they have to publish updates on a weekly basis.  At the same time, it is clear that many people value the general village information that the updates have included and would like to continue to receive it.

From now on therefore, the Parish Council will publish a regular monthly newsletter, including information about the pandemic when needed.  This newsletter will only be posted as a news item on the village website.

We all owe a huge debt of thanks to Mick Fletcher and Sue Reece who have spent many hours sifting through government statements, kept up a steady flow of reliable information and ensured that the community has a number of support networks to    access. Most of these are still  in operation so here is our handy list for you to print out and put on your personal notice boards.

I’m also taking this opportunity to publicise a new statement from the Friends of Westbury Church and the latest guidance from the government on changes to lockdown restrictions.

Over 100 people already receive village news updates directly to their inbox, but if you haven’t yet subscribed, it’s easy and anonymous and you can unsubscribe at any time.


To subscribe, open the village website homepage,


then go to the bottom right of the page. Add your email address in the box and click Subscribe.


You will then start receiving news posts in your email inbox whenever a new one is posted to the website.


If you don’t have internet access, please let me know if you need printed copies of the newsletters.


Keep safe,



Sue Isherwood
