A total of 81 Brechin shops, a record, took part in the ‘Spot the Mistake’ window competition during Civic Week this year, so the young folks had quite a task getting over them all. Moreover, the shopkeepers are becoming wilier and the young folk had to be very sharp-eyed to spot the mistakes.

The recent flag day and collection in Brechin and district has again been very successful, yielding a total of £237.96 towards maintaining the lifeboat services. The Brechin honorary treasurer and the Ladies’ Life boat Guild are very grateful to all who gave up their time and energy to the collection and its organisation. This includes a number of Brechin High School pupils.
