Area Board grant providing opportunities for the isolated and lonely residents of Westbury
An grant provided by Wiltshire Council Westbury Area Board enabled us to put on an afternoon tea party free for the older people of Westbury who are isolated and lonely. The afternoon tea was much appreciated by the residents and they even asked if we would do it again! It was lovely to hear stories and how they felt about their neighbourhood.
