We will be using our website, social channels and newsletter to stay in touch, and hopefully bring you some joy and light-relief in the difficult months ahead. Don’t be a stranger, visit us at www.westwoodx.co.uk connect with us on Facebook @WestwoodCrossBroadstairs, Twitter @westwoodcross and Instagram @westwoodcross and register to receive our newsletter, which will mean you don’t miss out on developments.

“We look forward to welcoming you back to Westwood Cross just as soon as it is safe to do so. Stay safe, stay home if you can, social distance when you have to be in public and look after each other.”
