MR Archie Milne last week presented Brechin Scout Council Chairman James Milne with a cheque for £86 which he raised in sponsorship competing in the recent Glasgow Marathon. Archie’s time was a very commendable four hours and four minutes. He is already training for the Dundee Marathon which will be held in April 1985, when it will again be the Scout Hall Renovation Fund which will benefit from his efforts.

Tayside regional Council has given formal notice of their proposal to discontinue Farnell Primary School on the basis that the school’s delineated area can be divided between Andover Primary School, Brechin, and Friockheim Primary School using the line of the Forfar/Montrose Road.
