Grampian TV is presenting special programmes each Monday afternoon this month for the benefit of those whose autumn holidays plans are dashed by bad weather. 
Brechin and Forfar will both have their autumn holiday on September 30. The special programme for them will begin at 3.30 p.m.

Demolition work has started on the property in the High Street which was formerly the drapery business of J. Scott Lindsay.
A supermarket is to be built on the site. It will be run as a development project by the Achanacree Investment Company, Glasgow.
The £9,000 contract for the erection of the supermarket has gone to Haggart Bros. It is their biggest contract to date.
