Poet's Corner

Our resident poet Eila Webster encourages our young folk this month to get outside and play! Simple pleasures fondly remembered, as Eila reminisces on the joys of childhood before the days of computer games and social media !

Co-op Raffle

Thanks to all our friends and supporters who donated and helped with the Co-op Raffle on Saturday 22 April 2017 which raised a magnificent £300 for Westmuir funds.

Ann Warren, as always, made a wonderful job of making up a beautiful hamper of fine foods and wines which attracted Co-op shoppers to make sure they had a ticket.

Many thanks to the Kirrie Co-op for allowing us to use their entrance way - we appreciate the way they support the local communities.


RSPB Scotland Loch of Kinnordy

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 fundraiser for the Westmuir Hall and Community Woodland.


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 sometimes 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.


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'
Bordeaux

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.
