Westmuir's Poet in Residence

Did you know that Westmuir has a Poet in Residence? Well actually Eila Webster has lived here her whole life. Now in her 90's, Eila has been penning a new poem exclusivley for our village website every month since January 2015! With all her year's experience, Eila shares her wisdom in verse in ways that we can all learn from. Her latest poem for August 2017 is called ' Always Give of Your Best' and encourages us to be patient and keep going even in the tough times. Just click on the picture above to read Eila's latest poem.

All of Eila's poems are available here.

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.

Further information can be found on line regarding community councils. For example in the Community Councillors Handbook


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.


Co-op Raffle Adds Up !
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 £275 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. The hamper was won by Kate Robertson of Glengate, Kirriemuir. Many thanks to the Kirrie Co-op for allowing us to use their entrance way - we appreciate the way they support the local communities.

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.
