Community Woodland Announcement

Westmuir Community Development Trust has been successful in receiving funding from Scottish Charity Paths for All to improve the local path network within our Community Woodland in Westmuir. The path for which the grant will be used is the only remaining grassy stretch running parallel to the main road and the funding will be used to resurface the entire stretch with a new weatherproof surface. 
Work on the new path is planned for the weekend of Saturday 16 – Sunday 17th September and local residents and friends of the woodland are welcome to come along to help lay the path starting at 9.00 am each morning till 4.00 pm.

Paths for All is supported by the Scottish Government to promote physical activity and walking for health in Scotland.  Read more at: pathsforall.org.uk

Kirriemuir Landward West Community Council

Westmuir is one of seven rural communities which lie within the boundary of Kirriemuir Landward West community council. At present Westmuir does not have a representative on the KLWCC and 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).

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 the Chairman, Mr Roger Clegg Tele No: 01575 560274 or by email at: easterderry@easterderry.plus.com

Initial enquiries can be made to Mrs Helen Humphreys (Westbank, Westmuir) Tele No: 01575 572245.

In order to be eligible for any community council it is necessary to be:-
• At least 16 years of age.
• You must be on the electoral roll.
• You must be resident within the C.C. area.

Next KLWCC meeting will be held on Thursday 31st August 2017 in Kilry Village Hall.

Quiz Night @ the Hall
A huge thank you to Mike Downie for all his hard work in preparing and compèreing the latest Quiz Night @ the Hall.
Quiz
Quiz

With eight teams closely contesting general knowledge rounds on subjects such as 'Connections', 'Africa' and 'The Oscars' as well as a great 'Picture Round' to test our artistic knowledge, a terrific night was had by all. The eventual winners, pictured centre above, were the Dark Horses who narrowly pushed the previous quiz winners, the Losers & Wasters into second place. Our other photos show teams busily conferring during the mini warm up questions and Mike's innovative way of deciding the three way tie break which resulted.

Thanks to all who contributed prizes to the raffle which added to the overall success of this enjoayble event which raised more that £250 for the Westmuir Hall and Community Woodland.


Margaret Wilson Retires after 15 years of service

Margaret came to live in Westmuir in 1998 and has been very much part of village life ever since. Around 2002 she took on the cleaning of the Village Hall and has done a sterling job ever since. She always knew what was going on in the Hall and had it ready for next event. Margaret recently decided it was time to lay aside her broom and hang up her apron, so the Hall Committee and Friends of the Hall gathered to thank and present her with gift vouchers and flowers as a token of their appreciation.

Our pictures show Margaret Wilson with Isobel Keillor and other Friends of the Hall.
