Edzell Village Improvement Society, with the support of the Weather Clerk, carried through a very successful programme during the annual Gala Week. All ages groups were catered for. The week’s programme included a handwork, golf and children’s competitions, a ceilidh, a quiz, supper dance in the Glenesk Hotel, disco and a flower show in the Inglis Memorial Hall.

The current ban on parking at bus-stops, at present affecting Dundee only, could be extended to cover the whole of Tayside under a draft traffic order published by Tayside Regional Council. The council propose to extend the ban in order to improve pedestrian safety - by cutting out the need for people to walk on the road - and to help the free flow of traffic.
