Westhill and Elrick Community website

Welcome to the Westhill and Elrick Community website.

This site has been established by Westhill & Elrick Community Council (W&ECC) to bring together and promote the diverse range of community groups active in the area. It is hoped that as the website progresses more and more local groups will join us to promote what they do in the local community and that this site will be a one-stop shop to find out what's going on in Westhill & Elrick.

Our yearly Carols by Candlelight concert, everyone welcome.

Over 200 people enjoy the Westhill Christmas lights and songs

I'm delighted to report that by a rough count of the number of cups we served, well over two hundred people of all ages came along last Saturday afternoon to enjoy the hot choclate, mince pies, hymns, carols and of course to see the Christmas lights switched on. It was particulary good to see how many families with young children came along to enjoy themselves.

Remember the Festive Event at Shopping Centre on Saturday 13th December

The Christmas tree is up and decorations made by local families will be hung around the shopping centre this week.  Come along on Saturday 13th December at 4.30pm to watch the tree lights be switched on by resident Robert Owen, veteran of the Arctic Convoys, who was recently awarded the Russian Ushakov Medal for prowess and bravery in sea warfare.  There will be carol singing with music from Westhill Community Church, and hot chocolate and nibbles will be handed out.

"These are not just trolleys, these are Marks & Spencer trolleys"

Our local M&S store is a great asset to our town and along with the other mix of supermarkets and convenience stores in our town, typically draws customers to Westhill from a wide catchment area, from the Western side of Aberdeen city and from the West as far as Braemar.  However success can sometimes have a downside.  In this instance a few residents contacted WECC recently to ask if anything could be done about the problem of M&S shopping trolleys being left “out” away from the store.

Disappointment as Developers win Appeals on two Arnhall Planning Applications

The two Appeals were to allow Applications for:

  • The revised scheme for the erection of five office buildings near East Fiddie farmhouse.
  • Proposed earthworks and landscaping associated with the above scheme.

It is extremely disappointing to report that these Appeals were successful, not only because of the negative impact on the Beaton family at East Fiddie but also because the Developers deliberately ignored planning rules; and the Aberdeenshire Council’s Planning Department failed to take prompt action to stop their abuse.
