This summer has been a very busy one for us at Westbury. It started with the wedding of Christine and Idowu. It was a fabulous event much enjoyed by all. We wish them every happiness for their future.
Next we staged our first Community Fayre which was brilliant. We were blessed with wonderful weather and lots of wonderful stalls. We had puppets, singing from the worship team and a barbeque as well as lots of stall selling cakes, bric a brac. The icing on the cake as far as the children were concerned was a bouncy castle. Much used and loved by all the little ones.
After we had recovered from that, we then hosted "Junior Apprentice". It was terrific. Our area won! We were absolutely delighted. Thank you so much to all who helped with this project. There are pictures on a previous blog post.
It does not stop with just two weeks of Junior Apprentice. The Hebe Foundation, who run the project, mentor and advise and encourage the young people throughout the year. There are opportunities for work experience as well as a mentoring dinners. If you are under 19 years of age, go to the Hebe Foundation website for more details and get involved!
Next was Matthew and Giorgia's wedding. A wonderful event full of music, colour and fun. We wish them every happiness for their future also.
Now it is Autumn and the weather is getting colder. We can now get "hugge" as our Scandinavian friends would put it. This means "cosy" apparently and involves wearing warm clothes, cuddling up to roaring fires, drinking hot drinks and relaxing. All good.
