A gathering to mark the anniversary of the prison announcement

We won't forget the day that the Minister for Corrections announced that Westbury was the preferred site for the Northern Regional Prison. Since the shock announcement we've come together as a community in David and Goliath battles. There's been many memorable milestones and wins along the way.

Let's gather and remember 12 months of Saving Historic Westbury.
