Eighty children and adults from Westbury Juniors,  Westbury Infants, Westbury Leigh Primary and Bitham Brook Primary, will travel onboard the ‘Weymouth Wizard’ – an annual free outing by rail that has been running for several years – to spend the day in Weymouth.

This year’s trip has been made possible by the Westbury Lions, GWR, Wiltshire Council, Transwilts and Hearts of Wessex Rail Partnership.

The day-trippers will depart on Saturday 20th July.
