The Big Help Out

Published: 05 April 2023

Volunteer on Monday 8 May  

A key theme of the King's Coronation celebrations is about volunteering and getting involved in your local community. This is to highlight the positive impact volunteering has on communities across the nation, and to use volunteering to bring people together and create a lasting legacy from the Coronation weekend.

If you'd like to volunteer on Monday 8 May to help out in Westbourne, please see the list below of activities you could get involved in. These can be done at your own leisure and will help contribute towards looking after the Parish and all it has to offer.


  • Litter picking: Kits available to collect from The Meeting Place
  • Cleaning the village gateways: These are at the five entrances to Westbourne, intended to slow the traffic down and are painted white. They are looking a bit grubby and could do with a bucket of soapy water and a sponge. 
  • Cleaning the finger posts: We have 12 dotted across the Parish and they too are in need of a clean with a bucket of soapy water and a sponge.
  • Removing graffiti from some of the play equipment at the playground on Monk's Hill  
  • Downloading the data from the Speed Indicator Device on Foxbury Lane. This would give the Parish Council information about passing traffic speeds which could be used as evidence when requesting improvements to the highway. 
If you'd like to help with any of these activities, please email or call 07775 65 4483 for more information.


Coronation Champions

We will be celebrating local volunteers at the 9.30am service at St John the Baptist Church on Sunday 7 May. Coronation Champions will be given a special mention at the service by Reverend Andrew Doye to celebrate those who do so much for the local community.
