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.


Car Park Autumn Tidy Up

Wow! Woodland Paths .... Pop Up Cafe .... and last but not least (and only one week later) .... all those welcome and willing hands on deck again for the Car Park clean-up! A tremendous effort was made by local volunteers to clear the borders, remove overgrown branches and trim shrubs and then to transport everything in canvas bags to Kirrie Recycling site.
There is still more to do, but the area looks much better already. The clean-up happens once or twice each year, so if when out for a stroll you love to wander past the car park, remember you’ll be most welcome to come and help next time. Tea and coffee is usually provided for all volunteers in the village.

Pop Up Café an Outstanding Success

The latest Pop-Up Café was another great success with dozens of locals and friends dropping in for a coffee & cake or a light lunch. Together with the Tombola, the Raffle and the Sale of Plants, a grand total of £562 was raised for hall funds. Thanks to everyone who contributed the magnificent selection of baking and cooked food and especially to Isobel, Ann and the whole team who worked tirelessly behind the scenes in the kitchen.

Kirriemuir Landward West Community Council

Westmuir is one of seven rural communities which lie within the boundary of Kirriemuir Landward West community council. We are looking for someone to take on the role on behalf of the village. (All Community Councils are non-political groups whose purpose is to address issues and concerns within each area).

In the meantime Westmuir is being represented by Mrs Helen Humphreys (Westbank, Westmuir) Tele No: 01575 572245 who is able to take any local concerns to the Community Council on your behalf.

The Kirriemuir Landward West CC meet at 7.30pm in Kilry Village Hall on the last Thursday of the following months: February, May, August and November. It may be necessary from time to time to attend additional meetings. The role does require some real commitment and members must be prepared to offer consistent support to the Kirriemuir Landward West CC and the areas within it.

Should you be interested in attending the KLWCC meetings please contact Helen as above, or the Chairman, Mr Roger Clegg Tele No: 01575 560274 or by email at: easterderry@easterderry.plus.com
