A decision on the signposting of Stonehaven after the new bypass is opened will have to await the evaluation of experiments now taking place in bypassed communities, including Brechin. Alick Buchanan-Smith, MP for Kincardine and Deeside, said: “I strongly support proper signposting of towns when they are bypassed. That was why I was particularly delighted when I got Brechin included in the experiment which started earlier this year.”

Young folks made it a very happy Christmas for the patients in Brechin Infirmary. Carols were sung by the Cathedral Sunday School on Sunday before Christmas, by the High School on Monday, by the Boys’ Brigade on Tuesday and by the Cub Scouts from the US Navy base on Wednesday.
