The Pop-Up Pulled Pork !

The Hall committee would like to thank all the helpers, folks who donated, and customers who came along to the Pop-Up cafe on Saturday. The total made for the hall maintenance funds & village defibrillator is £522. This will make a substantial contribution to hall insurance costs for the year and will help with some of the upfront costs of a defibrillator.

Customers for the cafe came from the village and even crossed the border from Kirrie to sample the menu which consisted of a choice of five mouth-watering soups, filled rolls, pizza, quiche, salad and the main draw; The Downies’ Pulled Pork & Focaccia!

If you missed these treats, hopefully another cafe will be planned in the future, if the committee have enough volunteer helpers!

The WRI in Westmuir came together to celebrate with local resident Eila Webster who has been an active member of WRI for the past 80 years ! Joined by friends for a special event to mark the occasion, Eila said "I have loved my time in the Rural. It has been my life and bolstered my confidence. I was an only child and these friends became my family. I've enjoyed every second of it and made so many happy memories". Eila was made an honorary member of Westmuir Rural in 1999 and received a loyal member's certificate in 2012. Congratulations Eila from everyone in Westmuir.


Sheep Dog Trials - Westmuir Winner
Congratulations to Mr Michael Watt of Roman Road who was the winner at the Glen Clova Sheepdog Trials last weekend with his dog Nap. There were 27 dogs and handlers, so considerable success against some stiff opposition. Well done Michael !

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 September 2018 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.


Another Harvest Safely In . . .

Eila Webster's poem for November is called ' I Greet the Dawn ' in which she describes her wakening thoughts of hope and optimism; an example for us all to follow.

Why don't you have a read this month and give it a go !

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.
