May Reflections

Our resident poet, Eila Webster is in romantic mood this month as she considers the month of May. Whether it's the spark of love in youth or later years Eila has some wisdom for us as we wash our faces in the Mayday Dew !

You can read Eila's poem for May 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.

Westmuir WRI Federation Show Success
WRI Success 2016

WRI members were pleased to have their efforts rewarded at the Federation Show held in March. Everyone who entered the individual classes received an award ranging from First to Commended. Special mention should be made of Margaret McIldowie, who joined Westmuir when Lintrathen closed. Margaret entered seven handcraft classes & received an award in each class. She was runner-up for the Lawrie Trophy which is awarded for the six embroidery classes. Congratulations!

The theme for the co-operative exhibit was “A Day at the Races” and had to include a knitted article, a sewn article, an article containing beadwork, four assorted canapes, four champagne truffles, two slices of salmon terrine and two items of the team's own choice. This was not an easy task and those involved were delighted to come second, only half a mark behind the winner.


WRI Presentation

At their most recent meeting, Westmuir WRI 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.

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.


Kinnordy Wildlife in Abundance
George Milne, our website photographer, recently took a walk around Loch of Kinnordy Nature Reserve and captured some lovely wildlife photographs. Not content with the one squirrel in his photo opposite, George took some marvellous images of feeding geese, oyster catchers and blue and coal tits. It's not often you get to see two squirrels together so Click Here to see George's photographic record of his visit to Kinnordy.

A huge Thank You to everyone who voted online at the Co-op Local Fund for the Westmuir Hall Improvement Project for funds to upgrade the hall toilets. We are delighted to announce that we have heard that the project has been awarded £2,500

We are very grateful to the Co-op for their continuing support of local communities and would also like to congratulate Isobel Keillor and her team for their success in winning such a large share of this funding.

This is brilliant news for everyone in Westmuir who makes use of the village hall and continues the careful maintenance and ongoing improvement over may years since the hall was first built 80 years ago. Well done everyone.
