The Pop-Up Pulled Pork !

The Hall committee would like to thank all the helpers, folks who donated, and customers who came along to the Pop-Up cafe on Saturday. The total made for the hall maintenance funds & village defibrillator is £522. This will make a substantial contribution to hall insurance costs for the year and will help with some of the upfront costs of a defibrillator.

Customers for the cafe came from the village and even crossed the border from Kirrie to sample the menu which consisted of a choice of five mouth-watering soups, filled rolls, pizza, quiche, salad and the main draw; The Downies’ Pulled Pork & Focaccia!

If you missed these treats, hopefully another cafe will be planned in the future, if the committee have enough volunteer helpers!


Sheep Dog Trials - Westmuir Winner
Congratulations to Mr Michael Watt of Roman Road who was the winner at the Glen Clova Sheepdog Trials last weekend with his dog Nap. There were 27 dogs and handlers, so considerable success against some stiff opposition. Well done Michael !

Of Quiz Nights and Cafes

The Spring Quiz went well with four teams of five quizzers answering questions ranging from James Bond theme song singers to a new Word round. Here's a couple of sample questions:

' What are the only two words in the English language to begin and end with UND ?' Answer: UNDERGROUND or UNDERFUND. . . or try this one . . . 'What is the only word in the English language that, when capitalised, is changed from a noun or a verb to a European nationality?' Answer: POLISH

A Popup Cafe is being organised for the 15th September 2018 with raffles and tombola etc. More details to follow.

Two more Quiz Nights are being planned, one in the Autumn and one in the Spring. Again details can be found here in due course.


South Africa by Land Rover by Hamish Howe

The Fundraiser for the Village Hall on Saturday 10 March proved to be one of those memorable evenings which steer off in a whole new direction of fun and learning . . . and succeeds. The Presentation given by Hamish Howe on a number of Tours by Land Rover across various countries in Southern Africa was beautifully done and enjoyed by all those in attendance on the night.

The enthusiasm of the audience created a lively atmosphere which was further enhanced by a fun quiz on a travel theme, with questions from Hamish’s travels across Africa as well as questions from a Tour around Westmuir!

The sum raised for the Hall Funds was £147.00 Sincere thanks to all who contributed raffle prizes.

Community Woodland Path ~ Phase 2 Completed

Thanks once again to everyone who contributed to a busy day in the Woodland Park on Saturday 28th October when Phase 2 of the new all weather path was completed by spreading a top layer of whin dust to complete the project, made possible by funding received from 'Paths for All' and Scottish Natural Heritage.

This was a great community effort coordinated by the Westmuir Community Development Trust and thanks are due not only to Jim Millar and Ian Cobb who kept the project on track, but also to all our volunteers who loaded loaders, shovelled & brushed, raked & tidied up and willingly gave up so much time and effort to complete the work so efficiently.


No doubt we will arrange an 'official' opening in due course, but there is no need to wait for that as the new path is now in place and ready for use.
