Join Judith and her host families in Westbury and not only will you have great fun, but it will bring an extra Tax Free income into your household! Our Westbury centre was established in 2015 and, like Trowbridge, has steadily gained a well-deserved reputation for Excellent Hosting.

Our Westbury Team


Judith Laird is our Area Manager, Administrator and Westbury Coordinator - so she looks after the students, teachers and host families throughout the stay.  As an experienced host and team manager, she is there to ensure that everything runs smoothly and to help if you have any problems or queries.


Heather Blackley joined the team in 2019 and is the 2nd Coordinator for the Westbury centre. She brings with her a wealth of experience as a host and will be helping the team to maintain the Excellent reports they have received to date.


Roxy Shepherdson has recently joined the team as an Administrator.  Roxy will be helping with placements and recruitment, so expect to hear from Roxy with details about your students and to explain how we work.
