Plans are now well ahead for the grand ‘555’ Dinner’ to be held in Brechin High School on the evening of Saturday, September 29. Two wines, one red, one white, have been specially bottled for the occasion and will be on the tables with extra supplies available for sale as souvenirs of the occasion.

The US Navy Base, Edzell, last week further demonstrated their interest in the local community when the 7-8-9 Association, an organisation of senior petty officers at the Base presented a cheque for £200 to the Montrose branch of the RNLI to provide “bleepers” for the Lifeboat crew. The presentation as made by Master Chief Red Adams and Senior Chief Tom Germer, president of the Association, to Mr Noel Smart, branch chairman.
