Westwood with Iford
A very Happy New Year from us all at Westwood School. We were delighted to see so
many of you at our Christmas Fair and now we are back for another exciting
Thank you to those of you who attended our Westwood
Oral History Project launch meeting. We are looking forward to getting this
underway and are now in a position to start compiling our group of community
members who would like to share their memories. If you, or someone you know,
would be happy to chat to some of our wonderful children about living and
growing up in the village, do please get in touch. Our email address is email@example.com
or you can call the school on 862408. We would love to hear from you.
Although this is a short term we have so much
to look forward to - our dancers are taking part in another Bath Forum
extravaganza, and we have a whole school Ocarina day coming up. You can keep up
to date with all that is happening at your local school on our website: westwoodwithiford.org or via our class
blogs at westwoodblogs.org.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org 867322 Article published: 24 Jan 2018
Westwood Craft Fair
Thank you to all those who came along to the craft fair, which hosted a wide range of stalls selling very high quality products. We had another very successful outcome raising £95 for both Cats in Distress and Medical Detection Dogs. Both charities hosted stalls there in order to promote themselves and raise money in their own right.

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.
