SPONSORED WING WALK
In aid of the Church Roof fund and Air Ambulance.
After his successful Sky Dive in 2018 raising money for Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s charities, Andrew Sealy will be taking to the skies once again for a Wing Walk on the 14th July to raise money towards the repairs needed for our Church Roof AND for the Somerset and Dorset Air Ambulance.
Your support and encouragement would be very much appreciated. Sponsorship forms can be found in the Village Shop, Westbury Pub and in the Church Porch. Donations may also be left at
Leacroft, Roughmoor Lane.
We hope we will be able to announce the amount raised at the Walking Treasure Hunt day on the 17th July AND look at some photos!
THANK YOU VERY MUCH IN ADVANCE!

Click on the link below for the latest Takeaway menu from the Westbury. Note that there is a new menu feature, some daily specials for takeaway, so telephone to see what they are. To some extent the menu has been scaled back so that the Pub can focus on those taking advantage of being able, once more, to dine IN!! If you wish to dine in it is important that you phone and book a table and you must wear a mask until you are actually sitting at the table. Tables of 6 or tables of two households are allowed. All 2m social distancing is still in place.
