Sunday 27th April 1p.m.

Last year Tealing Hall Management Committee sent out an information sheet about the community taking ownership of Tealing Hall from Angus Council.

We can now advise you that the transfer of ownership will soon be complete and "We", the Tealing Community will own our hall.

As part of the information sent out, we requested for volunteers to help make-over the waste/ dumping ground at the rear of the Hall and to turn it into a community asset. We have already made a start on this project by removing 30 years of fly tipping and laying paving the length of the hall.

 We are planning a day of action and would like your help to complete the following tasks

  • Grass seeding of area to west of new paving.
  • South fence repair and painting.
  • Clean up of perimeter.
  • Gravel on membrane round hall
  • Permanent signage – “No dumping No fires etc”
  • Clean moss from roof and gutters
  • Fill pot holes.

Work will start at 1pm on and we will be providing food and refreshments.

Thank you for your support

18 Aug 2013 Generous Donation of World War 2 WAAF Jacket by Mrs Mabel Langlands

Tealing Community Council Chairman, Graeme Reoch, was delighted to accept the generous donation of Mrs Mabel Langland's WAAF jacket at a small ceremony with afternoon tea in Tealing Hall on Sunday 18 August.

Mrs Langlands, now a sprightly 93 years of age, was wearing the jacket in May 1942 when she plotted the arrival at Tealing Airfield of the Russian Goverment Minister, Molotov, who was on his way to London to meet Winston Churchill to sign the Anglo-Russian Peace Treaty. Part of Tealing's history has come home and arrangements are being made to preserve and display the jacket in Tealing Hall.

Sunday 20 May 2012, Tealing Airfield Memorial unveiled!  Photo Gallery

Almost 100 people came along on Sunday 20 May to see the Airfields of Britain Conservation Trust (ABCT) unveil a permanent granite memorial in memory of those who served at the airfield during WW2. Community Council Chairman, Graeme Reoch, welcomed everyone and then Steven Burke read from Jim McFarlane of Todhill's happy childhood memories of the aerodrome, which were both funny and very touching - moving some of those present to tears.

It was a happy occasion though for many reasons. We were honoured to have two very special guests, WAAFs Mabel Langlands and Margaret Erskine who were both based at Tealing Airfield. Mabel was in the Operations Room and actually plotted Molotov's landing on 20 May 1942! Both ladies are 90 years old and were delighted to participate in the event. We thank them both and their families for coming along.

Ken Bannerman, Director General of ABCT unveiled the memorial, followed by Dr Ted Luscombe, retired Bishop of Brechin and Kirkton of Tealing resident, who did a very moving dedication. We were also honoured by a flyover and salute from pilots Drew Dudgeon and Jim Watt of Tayside Aviation flying from Riverside Dundee Airport.

Piper Ross Henderson of Fintry Pipe Band then lead everyone back inside for a cuppa. The conversation and memories flowed until, after more than 60 years, the Tealing Airfield bell rang out in Angus again. It had been brought to the hall for the day by Dougal and Elma Barrie, whose Auntie Bebe (previously of Moatmill) preserved it after the war. Thanks to everyone who made it such an enjoyable and memorable day!

Most of all, it’s about people of all ages in the village coming together to enjoy activities. There will be something for everyone.” Alison Scott, head teacher of Tealing Primary School said “We are really pleased that the school sports will open the village Gala Weekend. The children are all looking forward to it and the Olympic theme is adding extra excitement this year.”Reverend David Collins of Sidlaw Churches added “It’s heartening to see the enthusiasm and local interest this community-building project is generating.
