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.

Poet's Corner

August Berries

In Eila's poem for August, she reflects on the 'all year round' availability of mass produced fruits and berries and how few of today's youngsters experience the joy and satisfaction of growing their own.

You can read August Reflections here.

All of Eila's poems so far are now available on our History Past and Present page where there is also a great feature about Eila and her life story so far.


WRI Presentation

Westmuir WRI recently presented a cheque for £500.00 to the Westmuir Hall Association. The WRI had raised the money at their Bingo night in October and Iris Forrest is pictured here handing the cheque over to Hall Association Chair Isobel Keillor.

Woodland Work Party
Every year a group of willing volunteers gets together to clean up the surface and borders of the car park at the far end of the Community Woodland. This year's band of happy shovellers paused for a quick photograph before heading home leaving a pristine parking area for visitors to enjoy. Hi Ho, Hi Ho . . .

'Bordeaux Calling Westmuir'
Bordeaux

Colin Sherriffs, now living in France, was a school lad when he lived in Westmuir (1990s). Colin delivered our ’Couriers’ and helped in the Shop where his Mum was owner. Musically talented, he appeared in many ‘Guide Dog for the Blind’ concerts helping to raise much needed funds. From Webster’s High… to Strathclyde University then to University in Germany. There he met Annabelle, a student from Bordeaux – and the rest is history!

Marriage… a work stint in Scotland… then to France… and family expanding as their three children arrived, now aged (13), (11) and (8) and not forgetting the hens, ducks and 19 baby chicks. Colin teaches English at the University, works in the vital Wine trade of the Bordeaux region and is the elected Mayor of his home village! Aye - not bad for a laddie from Westmuir Shoppie!

Read Helen's account of a Westmuir Village Tour to Bordeaux in May of this year.


Pop Up Café A Big Hit!

Westmuir's Pop Up Café event went very well with lots of hungry visitors enjoying the fare on offer. The homebakes and plants stalls were also very busy. Over 40 full lunches were served with many other teas, coffees and cakes. Thanks particularly to all who made donations of cash, food, homebaking, plants and raffle and tombola prizes. Also to the kitchen 'staff', waitresses, stallkeepers, raffle ticket sellers et al.

It is really good when the community comes together: Community matters!


Co-op Bag Pack Raises Funds
Coop

On Good Friday a team of volunteers took it in turns to offer bag packing help for customers at the Co-operative Store in Kirriemuir. A total of £273.69 and one U.S. Cent was donated by grateful shoppers in aid of hall funds and the community woodland. Our picture shows Mike Downie helping Marilyn pack her groceries as she prepares for the Easter weekend. Thanks to all those who helped.
