We need to raise a total of £5000 in order to undertake some essential repairs to our Barn. Thanks to a fundraiser earlier this year and to the huge generosity to those that donated we managed to raise £4000.
We need to raise a further £1000 in order to start these urgent repairs.
WHY IS IT ESSENTIAL TO REPAIR A BARN?
The Barn is a great asset to Westbury, dating back to the 17th century it has a great deal of history as well as lots of character. It is for this reason it makes a wonderful exhibition space, It also makes a great space for local bands to rehearse in and offers fantastic opportunities for the community to hire out for all sorts of events.
Over the years the Barn has slowly been deteriorating and due to the high winds earlier this year it really did suffer!
A recent Bat survey has been conducted at Westbury, this confirms that we have Bats using our barn as their home. These are a protected species therefore we can't forge ahead with any repairs unless we have a Bat mitigation plan, this alone will cost around £1300!
We need to make these urgent essential repairs to stop any further deterioration so that we can keep on providing this amazing space for our local community.

We do hope you can help, any little really does help!
