Westbury on Trym News

As the weekend approaches, a round up of some of the mundane but none the less mildly interesting events or developments in and around the village.

The large house at the bottom of Henbury Road remains unsold and the owners appear to have lost faith with estate agent Savills, the six-bedroom property now being marketed by Andrews. The asking price for the executive property has dropped in price by £100,000 over the last eight months.

I have never seen the sign at the entrance to Red Maids School looking quite so scrubbed and pristine. Could the school's open day have anything to do with this dramatic facelift?

Another brave entrepreneur has taken on the commercial property at the top of Westbury Hill, near its junction with Falcondale Road and Grange Court Road. This time, it has become a retail wine merchant. I wonder if this business will fare any better than the numerous car showrooms and other outlets that have occupied this oddly-sited commercial space over the last ten years.

The Westbury on Trym local food market takes place this Saturday morning for all things locally sourced.
