The town was described as 'free-spirited' and 'pretty'

I can't see Westbury Ever Getting On this List.
What Would Westbury Have to Do To Achieve This Honour.?

    • Info about internet "Trolls"
Relocate to anywhere that is not close to a larger town that sucks most of the retail trade out of Westbury that is not already sucked out by the nearest regional centre (Bath).

You've missed the point.

Frome is successful because it is a large town with no other larger town nearby sucking out the retail spend more than the nearest regional centre does anyway ...

Westbury is surrounded either by the Salisbury Plain (where no trade occurs) or three larger nearby towns.

You might need this spelt out for you - Trowbridge, Frome and Warminster are bigger than and near Westbury.  They suck away the retail trade.

Southville, Bristol in 2nd place?

Southville is pleasant if you like terraced housing  ...

According to Wiki:

The area has been gentrified since the early 1980s, accompanying the national rise in house prices. It has been jokingly referred to as Lower Clifton, a reference to a more prosperous area of the city. New bars and restaurants and the nationally renowned Tobacco Factory theatre attract visitors to the area, while the Southville Community Centre and Southville School have become the central features of a vibrant community atmosphere. There are many artists living in the area; during the annual Arts Trail which ended in 2018, they opened their houses to the public to show and sell their work.
