Friends of Westwood School Update
One again we held our annual Summer Fair on Saturday 7th July.
It was so lovely to see how many people from the local community supported us, as always.
We faced some challenges with the very hot weather and a certain England v Sweden football game!
As well as our ever popular BBQ, other events included Maypole dancing, a very competitive game of Tug of War and local arts and crafts stalls.
We raised an impressive total of £1573.
All of that money is invested directly back into the school to enhance the children's learning and educational experiences.
Thank you for your continued support.

Westwood School update May 2018
Hello again from Westwood School! We have had another busy few weeks with lots to celebrate and report.
Our Oral History Project is gathering tremendous pace and publicity and by half term we will have 6 fabulous interviews on our website, westwoodheritage.uk. Please add your stories too using the website form as we would love to read about your memories and if you would like to get involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us @wwiheritage on Twitter.
I must say a huge well done to our brilliant Year 6 children who took their SATs this week and were a credit to the school. As always they worked incredibly hard and we could not be more proud.
Thank you if you have taken the time to listen in to our radio station, Westwood Radio. Our listener figures are booming and we will soon be welcoming back Ben Prater from BBC Wiltshire’s Breakfast Show to broadcast from our playground as part of their Step into Summer campaign! Find out more on radio.westwoodwithiford.org, including all of our shows to listen again.
See you at the Summer Fair on Saturday 7th July!

Westwood with Iford School News
Hello again from a very busy Westwood School! Thank you so much to those of you who attended our recent quiz night. It was a delight to see the hall full of members of our community!
Hopefully you will now be aware that out Oral History Project is up and running and has its own website - westwoodheritage.uk There you will find a fascinating interview with David and Kate Windo about growing up in Westwood. There is also the opportunity to view some old photographs of Kate’s from school days gone by - are you in there anywhere? Plus you can tell us your story or get in touch if you would like to contribute to the project. We will be coming out into the community and even broadcasting live as well, so do keep an eye on our website, our blog heritage.westwoodblogs.org and our Twitter feed @wwiheritage as there will be so much to share over the coming months.

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

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 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.
