The Brechin Area is next on the list for the appointment of a full-time worker amongst the young people, it was reported at the first annual meeting of Brechin Youth Club.
Mr D. A. Adams, of Angus education department said the committee had decided to appoint nine youth leaders in the catchment areas of the county’s secondary schools and the five remaining vacancies included Brechin. Mr Adams had been asked what support could be provided to keep the enthusiasm of Brechin Youth club, formed seven months ago, following a petition from younger teenagers to the council.

An excited party of youngsters left Brechin last night for Brittany. Twelve high school pupils are off to Josselin to spend a holiday in Brechin’s twin-town.
