Working for a better Westbury

Westbury is in Wiltshire, one of the south-western counties of England, and is bounded by Gloucestershire, Berkshire, Hampshire, Dorset and Somerset. The town of Westbury is a small town that lies not far from its famous White Horse hill-carving at the western extremity of Salisbury Plain.

Due to the current coronavirus situation the town council is constantly reviewing its approach to forthcoming meetings.

We will have to limit the number of swings to ensure social distancing (2m) but all the play areas will have a swing or swings in for the weekend.

Below are some of the signs you can expect to see at the play areas.

Update on the Public Toilets Warminster Road and the High Street car park

Despite careful consideration the town council has chosen not to open the public toilets at this time.

The government has provided a list of measures needed to allow for the reopening of public toilets. Two of the measures include an increase in the frequency of cleaning in line with usage and to keep the facilities well ventilated.

Due to limited staff resources and the layout of the public toilets in Westbury we are unable to meet these measures and the town council deemed it unsafe to reopen the facilities.

We will continue to review government guidance and revise our assessment as restrictions ease.

The Men’s Group has gone online and restarted on Monday 15th June 2020, 7pm For more information visit their Facebook Group @WestburyMen’sGroup ——— Westbury Town Council launched its first Men’s Group, highlighting the fact that mental wellbeing is a yearlong focus. The group will run every Monday at 7pm, usual in the Laverton’s Abraham room. Wiltshire’s higher than national average suicide rate is one motivation for the group, not least because 75% of all suicides are male.
