The Whistler – April

John Constable, R.A. (1776-1837), Seascape Study: Boat and Stormy Sky, ca. 1824-1828

Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting of the West Hill Community Association, at which the accounts will be adopted and committee elected, will be held on Tuesday 25 April 2017 at the West Hill Hall at 7.15pm.

The aims of WHCA are to keep the Hall available for community use and to publish The Whistler to maintain and improve communication in the local area. West Hill Hall has thrived as a space for community activities ever since we bought it in 1996 and it is the Association’s intention to keep the Hall available and maintained. Regular activities can be seen in the timetable (right) and we also hire it  out for ad hoc activities, kids’ parties and selected music gigs. The Association runs a monthly Quiz and Spring and Autumn local history talks, to which all residents are welcome. See details of the next talk on May 9 below, ‘Herstories: Women, Popular Culture 7 History’ with Dr Louise Fitzgerald.

The business of the AGM will be followed by our perennial favourite, the Quiz. All are welcome. Go on, give it a try. It’s a great way to meet new people in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere and get involved with local activities. 2016 saw record numbers of people attending the Quiz and having none-too-serious fun.

2016 was also The Whistler’s 40th birthday and as we continue along our 41st year, we’d love to hear from our readers whether you want us to keep going as we are, change direction, go digital only, include new themes for the articles. We rely on contributions from you, our readers, so please help us steer the content in the direction with subjects that you want to read. We love reading your letters so do keep them coming.
