Due to the enthusiasm of staff and pupils of Brechin High School, it has proved difficult to curtail an otherwise ambitious and very promising programme in order to perform on stage at the Mechanics Institute. In view of this the office-bearers considered it wise to accept Rector Dron’s invitation to present this concert in the Assembly Hall of Brechin High School.

The men who battled to keep Tayside’s roads open during the worst winter snows for almost 20 years came in for praise at last week’s meeting of the roads committee. Mr Wallace Thom said he did not want to add a sour note, but the condition of the Brechin -Forfar road, he said, was “disgraceful”, as was the Brechin bypass road.
