The Westbury Park Community Association held a well attended social get together in November at the newly refurbished Westbury Park pub and kitchen.

Over 70 people attended the event and enjoyed the community buffet of food and wine supplied by the pub. 

Chair of the organisation, Kevin Chigley said: “It was very much what we were hoping for - people coming for a night out. We’ve signed up new members emails which we can add to our list of regulars.”

The Society are keen to promote more interaction between the generations locally, something which is always seen in the highly successful Westbury Park Festival and Open Gardens held each summer. Their aim is to keep residents better informed about issues and proposals affecting Westbury Park, which includes influencing planning, traffic and environmental policies as well as working to improve community facilities and services. 

Jane Wills helped to organise the evening and said: “The pub has been very good and couldn’t have done more for us.” 

There are plans for another event in the spring.
