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.

Quiz Night @ The Hall

Many thanks to Michael & Lilian Downie for treating us all to another great quiz night on Saturday 11 November. The hall was packed out with more than 50 local residents, families and friends as they competed to come out on top of what was a very varied and entertaining set of questions set across a range of categories and posed by Quizmaster Mike. In the end the winning team was 'The Three Amigos' with team 'RORO' as runners up.

Thanks to everyone who supported this event which, combined with a super raffle, raised £236 for the maintenance and annual running costs of the hall which continues to be used daily for the benefit of our local community.


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.
