Fund (HLF) for an exciting project, Westwood Heritage Oral History Project,
taking place in and around the Westwood Community. Made possible by money
raised by National Lottery players, the project focuses on using the children’s
interviewing and broadcasting skills to capture precious memories from members
of the community that we can share with future generations. We will also be
holding larger groups sessions where we will broadcast Westwood Radio live from
the venue, so anyone with historic photos or artefacts will be most welcome.
We will be holding a ‘Mince Pies and Memories’ launch meeting on Thursday

Safari Supper - for the uninitiated!
This is a charity event, started many years ago, to raise money for the church.
The basic idea is that people meet at tables of 8 for starters, move to another house for the main course, and again for sweet .Each time, travelling in pairs, you will meet a different set of people, until we all come together at the end for coffee. Most people will need to cook a course for it to work (25% starters, 25% mains,25% sweet), and then about 25% can come purely as guests. Drinks are provided by your host. The event is open to residents of Westwood, Avoncliff and Iford. The cost is £10 per couple, if you cook, and £50 as guests.
It is a great opportunity to eat good food, drink too much, stagger around the village and meet new people. If you come without a partner, I will pair you up as appropriately as possible for the evening.
Clearly this takes a good bit of organization, so you do have to sign up well in advance. Watch Update for details.
This year it will be on Saturday 2nd June. Jane Mitchell email@example.com 867322 Article published: 24 Jan 2018

Westwood scarecrows are back!
Our annual village scarecrow trail raises
much needed funds for Westwood with Iford
School and Westwood Nursery School.
It takes place from Saturday 26th May to Sunday 3rd June 2018 this
As ever, we need people to make scarecrows
and to host scarecrows in their front gardens along the route. The theme
this year is ‘One of A Pair’ – think about a famous pair or duo, and you need
to make one of them with hints and clues as to the pair. The trail goers
will have to guess which famous pair it is. As an example, you could make
‘Tom’ from ‘Tom and Jerry’ – Google ‘famous pairs or duos’ for more
ideas. It would be great to have a wide range of scarecrows from film,
TV, books, sport, history … the scope is endless! It also would be lovely
to have some that our younger nursery and school aged trail goers can easily
guess too. Pictures of last year’s scarecrows are available at http://www.westwoodnursery.org/scarecrow-trail.html
to inspire you.
To volunteer to make or host a scarecrow,
or to find out more, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
(by Wed 28th March). We also need people to help make or serve cakes and
refreshments during the week itself, and donations of prizes for the trail –
all offers of help and support very much appreciated. With many thanks
from the Scarecrow Trail organizing group.

Westwood Nursery School news
The children learnt about spring last term, turning their
footprints into chicks, planted carrots, sweetcorn, peas and lettuce seeds and
are busy watering them to help them grow. We looked at daffodils and had a
really good go at painting our own. We made our Mummy’s/Nanna’s a wind chime
for Mothering Sunday. This term we have been doing lots of games with numbers. Over the Easter holidays we had 4 separate
reports of youngsters in the nursery garden sitting on the playhouse roof, the
garage roof and generally messing about, on one occasion being verbally abusive
to our maintenance man. We have contacted the local police and they have asked
if anyone sees anyone in the nursery garden outside our opening times to
contact them on 101. The nursery garden is for the use of the nursery only so
please can you remind your youngsters of this as the summer holidays approach,
We would like to give a massive thank you to all the villagers who
have put their Sainsbury’s vouchers through our door, we are going to get
counting, then choose some new resources for the children.

Westwood Update January 2017
In November we made firework pictures and celebrated the
festival of Diwali; making lanterns and rangoli patterns. We dressed in spots
for Children in Need and made poppy wreaths on Remembrance Day; the children
participated in 2 minutes silence too. December saw the nursery adorned by
beautiful Christmas decorations made by the children; they all also made and
decorated a hand print with magic modelling clay to decorate the tree for the
Tree Festival held in Holy Trinity Church
in Bradford-on-Avon. We visited Westwood with Iford School
to watch their nativity performance. The children practiced their nativity
songs with enthusiasm and on December the 14th the children dressed
up and performed their songs at the village church watched by their families
and hosted by the Mothers Union. The term finished with our Christmas party and
a visit from Father Christmas.
