Residents will remember that back in August last year
B&NES resurfaced this path through the particularly muddy section where
Avoncliff Wood comes down to the river. This work has been greatly appreciated
by the many people who walk along this attractive stretch (at least as far as
the Wiltshire border, where deep mud is again a difficulty in wet weather).
Now, though, there is a further problem with the river bank
alongside the newly resurfaced section, which is being eroded by dogs
scrambling in and out of the water. The B&NES Public Right of Way Team -
which is doing great work for us - is on the case and has applied to the
Environment Agency to install gabion baskets to stabilise the bank.
Until approval comes through, the vulnerable sections have
been taped off and dog owners are asked please to stop your dog going in to the
water at these points. If someone else walks your dog, we would be grateful if
you would pass this message on.Article published: 27 Jan 2017

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.
