Friends of Westlands Open To New Members
Published : 01/Feb/2017
Following months of hard work, it is very exciting times for South Somerset as Westlands Entertainment Venue prepares to reopen at the end of March 2017. The Friends of Westlands volunteer group are delighted that this wonderful complex has been retained for the benefit of the local community and Chairman Russell Payne said “We are keen to support the commitment made by South Somerset District Council through actively fundraising for the venue. Our aim is to give the people a venue to be proud of and for them to enjoy their experience with the best possible facilities.”
Over 8,000 people petitioned the council to retain Westlands and a huge number of people stated at the time that they would love to make a donation to see the venue thrive. The Friends of Westlands have therefore set up a donation page on the Westlands website to welcome any support from the local community. Committee member Sheila Larcombe said “We are grateful for any donations, large or small, as all money raised will be used to make ongoing improvements to this fantastic facility.”
The Friends of Westlands welcome new members to their volunteer group, so if you have any free time and are willing to get involved with a range of fundraising activities please contact the Box Office for more details on 01935 422884.
