Village news

Despite us all having nothing to do at the present time there are several events planned, both in the community and on Zoom.

You can access them via the Village website, by following the links below.

The Church of England has partnered with Marie Curie on 23rd March 2021 to mark the first anniversary of the first lockdown in the UK with a national day of reflection to reflect on our collective loss due to Covid-19, support those who have been bereaved, and hope for a brighter future.

Bellringers have been invited by the Church to participate in this day by marking the end of the one minute silent reflection at 12 noon by tolling a bell at 12:01.  There are other ways to get involved on the day detailed on the Marie Curie website at https://www.mariecurie.org.uk/get-involved/day-of-reflection

Accordingly one of the bells at St Lawrence’s will be tolled at 12:01 on Tuesday 23 March

 

There is an update on the Playing Field and notice of the AGM added here.

 

The WI have been meeting on Zoom, our next speaker is John Barkle talking about his book, details here.

 

The Friends of Westbury Church have their AGM in April, and information about the Charity can be found here.

Pandemic update

Friends of Westbury Church

Registered Charity No. 1050069

 

Westbury Church is tucked away and sometimes it may be easy to forget that is there.  Even if we are not regular church goers, we may take it for granted that it will always be there for the major events in our lives such as christenings, weddings and funerals.

 

We are lucky that we have a beautiful ancient church dating back to the 1200’s, but like all old buildings, it needs constant care and attention.  There is always ongoing maintenance   to be paid for.  The organ has just been repaired;  now the Chancel roof needs to be fixed and the internal walls need to be redecorated.

 

The Friends of Westbury Church was formed to give financial support to such repairs but, because of the pandemic, we have been unable to hold our usual fundraising events.  At the moment we are only able to raise income by membership subscription.  If you are not already a member ( perhaps new to the village) we invite you to consider becoming a member in order to help conserve our wonderful building.  Membership for 2021 remains at £10 for an adult and £5 for a young person under 21.
