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.

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.
