The congregation at the morning service in Edzell/Lethnot Parish Church on Sunday included the recently formed Edzell Scout Troop and Edzell Cub Pack. The service was taken by the Rev Stanley Strachan. The scout troop’s Queen’s Colours were dedicated.

The 12 pupils of Lethnott school gave their parents 10 out of 10 for successfully completing a sponsored walk in aid of a school trip. Fourteen adults walked more than 20 miles.

A gathering of approximately 4000 cubs, scouts, venture scouts and their leaders and their families found their way to the Jock Neish Cub Scouting Centre at Tannadice in glorious sunshine on Sunday afternoon for the official opening of the centre.
