Westwood Bells

Westwood bells have been ringing out for forty years now.  The tower has had its ups and downs, but currently there is a stable band of ringers who are doing well.  Not only can we cover Sunday services, but we are also winning competitions.

BUT we do need new blood from the village, so if you are a lapsed or would-be ringer, we’d love to see you.  Practice is 7.30 to 9 pm on Thursdays, and you will be welcome.  We are hoping to have an Open Tower at the fete on July 13th, so see you there if you can’t make a Thursday.

All enquiries to Sue Lindsey 01225 863503 or westwood@sdgr.org.uk

Westwood Football Club update

The season has now finished and the players can take a well deserved rest knowing they came a credible 7th in the Bath Sunday League, and who knows what they would have achieved had some of their key players avoided injury and other commitments, but the management team can now look forward to planning for next season.

Westwood Football Club update

A couple of spirited performances from the boys saw them pick up valuable points which currently sees them in 5th position in the Bath and District Sunday league ( as from 8th March), and with only a few games remaining it will be interesting to see in what position they will finally sit.

“Be still, and know that I am God”.

 

Good news! We are delighted now to be able to open our beautiful church safely for private prayer and reflection. So St Mary’s will be open on a Sunday and a Wednesday from 10am-12noon, as from Sunday, 21 June. Please bear with us as we need to limit numbers and be sure to keep everyone safe, and so do bring your own Bible and Prayer Book if you’d like one. So we now look forward to opening for public worship just as soon as we are able under the government regulations!  

 Please contact Joanna, the Rector, in the first instance for any
