Down Memory Lane

This week's Down Memory Lane picture was taken in 1937 when Rev G A Sefton was welcomed by Rev Neil McGill, to the newly united parishes of Fern and Careston. Rev Neil McGill, moderator of the Presbytry of Brechin and Fordoun was minister at Bervie old Parish Church as well Provost of Inverbervie. Rev Sefton was at Fern and Careston until he retired in 1966. We are always looking for new pictures to be included in this feature.

Edzell Village Improvement Society is not in favour of doing anything to stop the striking of the Inglis Memorial Hall clock during the night.

At the last meeting of Brechin District Council a complaint was read from the Glenesk Hotel Company stating that the clock disturbed their guests and asking that the striking be stopped between the hours of 11 pm and 7 am.

Members of EVIS sought the view of residents in the village, particularly those living near the hall. None had any complaint to make against the clock.

The recommendation will be reported to the District Council. During the day the clock chimes every quarter hour, but between 11 pm and 7 am only the hour is struck. Soon after the hall was built, visitors complained of the clock chimes, and as a result, apparatus was installed to stop the chimes during the night. But Edzell folk see no point to interfere with the clock striking the hour.

Although he has driven in only a few rallies this year, Ian Milne from Brechin ended the season with a good drive in last Sunday’s Low’s Trossachs Rally at Aberfoyle, the final event of the Scotsman Championship.

His Ford Escort, navigated by his wife, finished eigth in the very tough 120-car rally, which saw several other cars retiring after sliding off the icy forest roads.

Children from Halsey School at RAF Edzell were enthralled by a slippery visitor recently. A snake called Roland The Rat was brought to the school by Alan Carnegie, of Clatto Country Park. He described the habitat of Roland as well as allowing the snake to be gently stroked, dispelling the myth that snakes are slimy.

The number of questions afterwards was testimony to the interest generated.

It is the second time that Mr Carnegie has been to the school. On his previous visit, he brought a python, inevitably called Monty, who was a bit sleepier than Roland, but equally fascinating.
