Welcome to the Westmuir Village Website which aims to keep locals in touch with what is going on and to let the rest of the world know what a beautiful area and charming village we live in. Please let us know if there is anything you would like to see included on the site or about events or activities of local interest and we'll do our best to include them for others to enjoy.

Car Park Tidy - Volunteers Needed
This coming Saturday, 25th August between 9.30am and 11.30am, we will be carrying out our annual hall car park clear up. Please come along if you can, armed with secateurs, loppers, gloves and if anyone has large garden refuse sacks (the big blue ones) they would be helpful too.

Popular Pop-Up Café Returns in September

We'll be running our Pop-Up Café again to raise funds for the hall and the village defibrillator on 15th September from 11am till 2pm. Please put it in your diary for a slap-up lunch and watch out for the posters, website, paper and social media posts!

We're looking for volunteers to make us a pot of soup, cook up some items for the cake and candy, tombola, raffle and plants stall . . . and if that's not enough to ask, perhaps an extra hand or two serving meals / washing up etc please.

This was a big success last year and is a super opportunity to meet others or try your hand at volunteering to help this time round. Contact Ann Warren or Email us via our Contact Page if you'd like to help in any way.

New Feature - Local Community Policing Area Report

Now that Westmuir has a full representative on Kirriemuir Landward West Community Council, we have access to the latest Local Area Police Reports which are submitted to their meetings as a way of keeping local communities aware of any current areas or issues of concern.

You can Read the July Report Here.

We already have a link at the bottom of our left column which will take you to KLWCC's own website where you can also read minutes of recent Community Council Meetings.

The Best Summer on Record?
Have you had a look at our new Poet's Page yet? Eila Webster's latest poem: 'Summer Weather' is now available. Who can blame her for waxing lyrical about the ups and downs of the 'best' summer since 1976 and possibly the hottest of all time?

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.
