Poet's Corner

You can almost feel the cold seeping out from Eila's latest poem as she describes the Winter of 1947 (!!!) when the snow was piled up for weeks on end. It couldnt happen now, or could it?

Silent Auction Makes a Big Noise !

The Silent Auction which was held to raise funds for the village hall was a big success and lots of people turned out to enjoy a glass of wine or two, whilst bidding on all sorts of interesting and sometime unusual lots. As well as liquid refreshments, the Westmuir Hall Association and Friends had prepared warm snacks which went down a treat. Most of the goods on offer were snapped up and after deducting all costs in running the event, more than £300 was raised. Thank you to everyone who helped and supported this event once more.

Westmuir's Grand Prize Draw
Thanks to the very generous response by locals and their friends, all raffle tickets were sold and a the magnificent sum of over £460 was raised in this year's Grand Prize Draw in aid of Hall Funds and The Community Woodland. The draw took place on Thursday Evening 15 December in the hall, accompanied by mulled wine, mince pies and much merriement.

The magnificent Large Hamper, a feast of luxurious seasonal food and drinks, was won by Hilary Farquharson, Tannadice, and the Small Hamper, a tremendous collection of goodies in its own right, by Margaret McClaggan, Kirriemuir. Other prize winners were Linda Boland, Westmuir, Jo Shepherd, Westmuir and K. Cran, Kirriemuir.

A huge vote of thanks is due to everyone who worked so hard producing, distributing and selling tickets and gathering prizes, as well as all those who gave so generously by donating items and buying tickets by the bookload.

MacMillan Coffee Morning
A very successful Coffee Morning was held in the village hall on Tuesday 13th September 2016 in aid of MacMillan Cancer Support and was well attended throughout the day. In addition to local support during the morning, the Westmuir Walking Group completed a Treasure Trail in Alyth for the same cause, returning to the hall in the afternoon for a feast of home baking and a raffle, bringing the total raised for the day to £590. Congratulations to Helen & Brian & Barbara & Stuart who planned and organised this enjoyable and worthwhile day.

'Bordeaux Calling Westmuir'

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!
