Community Garden

Westbury Library Community Garden

Update - July 2020
Thanks to Alex and the Gardening team, Westbury now has a thriving set of runner bean plants, winding their way up a very sturdy framework! 
As well as the traditional Scarlet Runners, there are a number of Borlotti Beans - yes I has to use Google as well, and now know they go very well in soups, salads, risotto...
We are currently watering by using lots of plastic milk-bottles but, hopefully, will be able to install a water butt in the near future.

Library Reopening

Bristol Libraries have published an update on their plans to restart parts of the service. 
Full details can be accessed on the Council website:

In summary, you can visit Central Library from Monday, July 13th to return items borrowed from any branch and to use a "Call and Collect" service... 
  • You call Central Library on 0117 903 7250 to ask for up to 5 adult items, and up to 8 items for children or young people. If you don’t have a specific item in mind, you say what you like to read or watch, and they will suggest some items.
  • They find the items and put them in a washable, reusable bag.
  • When your items are ready to collect, they call you.
  • You can leave any items you don’t want to take home.
  • When you’ve finished with your items, return them in the same bag.

From Monday September 7th, you can visit to browse and borrow books and to use a pre-booked computer.

Friends of Westbury Library

Friends of Westbury Library

To enable us to develop community activities within the Library, it has been agreed that we would transform into a "Friends" group, with a constitution and a bank account.

A copy of the constitution has been circulated to everyone on our mailing list, and it is also posted on this website. An interim Committee has been set up and the intention is to hold an Annual General Meeting later in the year, hopefully within the Library building...
