JUBILEE FILM SHOW
On Saturday 1st June, the village hall became the Westbury Odeon, as a full house assembled for a 1950s film show. Before the programme started, they could watch a slide show of sport and showbiz celebrities of 1952 to music from the period.

The show got under way with a Tom and Jerry cartoon, followed by newsreels which included news of the death of the King and accession of Elizabeth II, the four minute mile and the ascent of Everest. The main feature was 'A Queen is Crowned', the only full length colour film of the coronation, and winner of an Oscar in 1953. At the interval, usherettes with torches and trays served ice creams and soft drinks.

A number of people suggested that more film shows should be arranged, and anyone interested in setting up a village film society should contact the chairman.

Judging02.jpg (85675 bytes)Uncertain weather at the start of the day failed to put off the 29 high quality fancy dress entrants, who presented guests of honour Christine and Walter Ellen with the difficult task of selecting selecting the winners. The children were entertained by a mystery clown, rumoured to be a member of the Westbury Footlights.

After the traditional parade through the village, to the music of the Bendix Kingswood Band, the prize winners were announced, and all entrants received consolation prizes.

Lunch02.jpg (38747 bytes)
About a hundred diners enjoyed an excellent lunch, prepared and served by our new caterers Mendip Buffets (tel: 01934 732269).

They were also entertained after lunch by Christine Ellen, our guest of honour, whose speech on the subject of 'The Queen and I' was extremely well received. A full text of her speech can be downloaded by clicking here.


SPORTS & SIDESHOWS (pictures to be posted later)
By the afternoon, the weather had brightened up, and a good crowd  made their way to the village playing fields to enjoy a wide range of attractions, including skittles, hoop la, coconut shy, tombola, zippy dipper, bouncy castle, inflatable obstacle course, tea tent and a licensed bar. After 4.00 p.m. there were free teas for children.

The Brian Cattell Cup was won by Rose Penforth, and the Tug-o-war trophy by the Hollowmen, who narrowly defeated the chairman's team.
