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 term.

Although this is a short term we have
so much to look forward to. 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.net This term we
are continuing to develop our wonderful reading culture and we are always
looking for volunteers to come in and listen to our children read. If you have
some regular time available, we would love to see you - the children always
enjoy sharing their books with adults and it supports them tremendously in
their reading development.
Westwood Radio continues to grow, with
two live shows a week on Monday at 8.30am and Friday at 12.30pm. Last month we
had over 12,000 listeners and you can tune in at radio.westwoodwithiford.org. If you would like to advertise on our station,

Our exciting Westwood Oral History Project is still active and we are looking for people who would like to share their memories. We have already interviewed a number of community members and learnt so much from them about Westwood in the past. We are always looking for volunteers to come in and read with children, too, so if you have some time to spare, please get in touch with the school.
Finally, if you would like your child to join us at Westwood in September 2020, please don’t forget that the deadline for primary school applications is 15th January 2020!
From us all at Westwood School, have a Merry Christmas!

The Return of BALSAM BE GONE! Report 2019
Be Gone working party had two successful Sunday morning sessions clearing the
banks of the rivers Frome and Avon between The Inn at Freshford and Cross Guns
at Avoncliff. The Woodland Trust's 'Broadleaf' brought in people from
Trowbridge, Bristol and Malmsbury to support the Westwood volunteers. One of
their members came from Freshford on the first session, but sadly we had no one
else from Freshford or Limpley Stoke this year.
that local people will take a look at the problem the Himalayan Balsam is
having on their river banks. It's fun to work together for a couple of
hours on a bio-diversity project so close to home!
We wish to
thank Mr Godwin and The Woodland Trust for allowing us access to the river
banks from their fields. We also wish to thank Flisca for their grant, enabling
us to advertise the project for the second year of our community project and
BoA council for the loan of equipment. Thanks are also due to the No 10 Cafe at
Avoncliff for their refreshments for the volunteers on both days. It was so
welcome and their locally roasted coffee is brilliant! Also, many thanks for
the willing volunteers that worked so hard at each session.
for the return of BBG at the end of June 2020. Sue Field and Kay Crawford
