Angus Education Committee has approved a sub-committee’s recommendation that a grant of £10,000 be given towards the building of a swimming pool at Brechin, provided that the Education Committee has exclusive use of the pool during school hours.

Angus General Hospitals Board has decided that, with certain exceptions, children under the age of 12 will be admitted as hospital visitors. They will not be admitted where the patient is suffering from an infectious disease or is seriously ill. They will be allowed into chest units only with prior permission. Generally speaking they will not be allowed into maternity homes where mother and baby are together.
