Westwood Football Club - update.
The first game of the season was cancelled by the opposition due to lack of players, and the second game ended in an away defeat to a very good Bath side, but our players remain confident they can turn their fortunes around when all players are available.

If there are any footballers but there that are looking for a game, then please call Derek Downes on 07976 827488.

 Westwood School Jul 2018

Hello again from Westwood school and it’s hard to believe that we’re at the end of another academic year already. So much has taken place since I last wrote, including a fabulous Sports Day, two nights of first class entertainment from our older children performing Rock Bottom, our Oral History Project gaining pace and our Summer Fair. Thank you all so very much for supporting our school once again.

 Academically, our Year 2 & Year 6 children have again made us proud with their commitment, hard work and attitude to learning that resulted in their deservedly strong outcomes in their SATs and everyone throughout the school has had so many exciting learning opportunities this year, it has been a joy to see.

 Sadly, we are saying goodbye at the end of term to our wonderful Year 6 children and we wish them all every success in their new schools. We will miss them all!

 Finally, if you would like to be a governor at our successful school, please contact us via the school website www.westwoodwithiford.org. We would very much welcome additional members to our governing body.

 Have a great summer everyone!  Ian Rockey  Head teacher

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 Remembrance Poppies

A big thank you to everyone who made poppies or helped to assemble them. Visitors found the display in the church very moving. Our remembrance service was special as we learned more about every man that lived in our village and died in the two world wars as well as the Falklands and Afghanistan.

                 Thank you again,   Love Mary Needham

Drone

At 8am Sunday 11/11/2018 a small drone was spotted flying and hovering over the gardens of Haygrove Farm, Haygrove Nurseries and the Old Vicarage and was seen going towards the village (over the Lower Westwood Road). The drone was not being operated in accordance with aviation rules. In addition, this particular incident is considered as trespass and an invasion of privacy, with possible criminal intent.

The incident has been reported to the police. If you see a drone in the area or know who is operating one in the area please report it to the police by calling 101 and using the Reference AS-2018111-0318

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    jemitchell@talktalk.net       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.
