After weeks of planning Westbury Town Council in partnership with English Heritage, Natural England, Westbury Rotary Club and Westbury Rugby Football Club are pleased to announce that the cleaning of the Westbury White Horse is planned to take place on the 23rd and 24th of June 2018.

Volunteers have stepped forward to take on the challenge along with much needed sponsorship and help from Idverde and Hire Standards, both are local companies based on the White Horse trading estate.

We would like to thank all of our kind volunteers and sponsors for supporting us with this project and we are very much looking forward to seeing our White Horse sparkling once again.

It’s not too late!
We are still looking for more local sponsors and adults (18 years old or over) to get involved.  Please contact us to see where you can help the team to rejuvenate Westbury’s iconic landmark – 01373 822232 or
