It was reported at the Angus Education Committee meeting that Brechin Town Council had now approved the Education Committee’s proposal to erect the new Brechin High School at Banks of Brechin instead of at Wards of Pitforthie.

The first steps towards the provision of a £25,000 psychiatric unit at Stracathro Hospital were approved at the monthly meeting of Angus General Hospitals Board.
£3,000 will be spent on the project in the first year and the remaining £22,000 in 1964-65. Other projects approved in the capital building programme were a new telephone exchange (£7,000) and kitchen improvements (£3,000) at Stracathro Hospital.
