The village's first Quiz Night in many years saw almost 100 people packed into the Village Hall on Friday, 8th April for an evening of questions, beer and pizza.
The event raised more than £500 for the Hall and for our village church, St Mary the Less.
The first of a planned series of 'pop-up pub' nights at Westley Waterless Village Hall attracted more than. 120 people on Friday, 4th February.
The event was a great opportunity for villagers of all ages to get together over drinks from Bulls Bridge Bars and food from The Waffle Hut.. A newly-installed dartboard, pub games, carpet bowls and table tennis were all in use.
The pop-up pub night marks a revival of interest in the village's hall, which at one time played host to a weekly social club with a darts team and other activities. Suggested future activities include vinyl record nights, quiz nights and live music.
The hall is available for hire for social events, clubs and societies, with a discount for villagers.
Registration to become an interested party has opened for the Sunnica Energy Farm application and you can register here.

The proposed Sunnica Energy Farm is classified as a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project (NSIP) because its proposed generating capacity is higher than 50MW. NSIPs are major developments which require planning permission to be granted by the relevant Secretary of State through a Development Consent Order (DCO).
Unlike local planning permissions, which are considered by local authorities, DCO applications are made to the Planning Inspectorate (PINS). This independent body administers the application process on behalf of the relevant Secretary of State, including normally a maximum six month examination into the proposals with which interested parties can get involved. In this case, the appropriate government department is the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
East Cambridgeshire District Council is a Statutory Consultee and will make representations on the application to PINS at the relevant times in accordance with the process set by PINS.
Further information on the DCO application process and how to participate can be found on the National Infrastructure Planning website.
Information about the proposals can be found on the Sunnica Website
