Urgent information relating to Bluebells at Westwood.

It is with great regret that Marlborough & District Lions Club will not be able to manage the Bluebells at Westwood this year. This is due to the Forestry Commission not allowing us to open the gates for cars to access.

Their official response is : Regretfully, the Forestry are unable to grant permission for Marlborough Lions for Bluebell Drives in West Woods this year. Unfortunately, due to the risk of damage to public vehicles from the uneven road, we cannot open the forest gates for the Bluebell Drive this year.

Marlborough & District Lions Club apologise for any inconvenience this may cause as we know that there are many people who look forward to this every year. We hope to be able to put it on again next year.
