Brechin City Band (bandmaster George O’Donnell) competed against 22 other bands in the third section of the National Brass band champions in London at the weekend.

A £10,000 plan by the Matrix Social club for improved club facilities has been approved by Brechin Dean of Guild Court. 
The club is to convert the west end of the Eastmill Hall for social functions an the plans will include a bar.

Because of increased demands on the library at Stracathro Hospital the service to the wards is to be improved and a library/reading room service for ambulance patients is to be established.
