The Westbury on Trym Society began its life as a group saving the Victorian village hall from destruction in 1970. 

Later it was inaugurated as one of the first conservation societies in Bristol in 1972 – and that’s what the Lord Mayor Cllr Steve Smith and Lady Mayoress, his wife Catherine, commemorated in a recent reception. 

The Lady Mayoress was invited to cut the 50th birthday cake, which featured miniature flower pots in celebration of the Society’s flower displays since 1982 and Westbury’s contribution to ‘Bristol in Bloom’.

The Lord Mayor then raised a toast to Westbury on Trym.

“The Society was thrilled to host the Lord and Lady Mayoress following our 50th Annual General Meeting”, said Hilary Long, the current chairman.
