Thirty three pupils from Andover School and 15 from Edzell School had a five-day educational trip to London last week travelling by train. Mrs Brenda Simpson of the Andover staff was in charge of the party.

In her annual report Mrs Thomson had to note that at 31st March the numbers involved in guiding in Brechin had dropped below 200 for the first time since 1978. This dramatic fall in membership was due to the suspension of the 6th Guide Coy.

DENNIS GROARK, Brechin, depute director of Angus District Libraries raised £200 by completing the Dundee marathon and presented a £100 note to the Brechin Beavers swimming club-and the special unit at Townhead Nursery.
