Brechin may be chosen for the introduction of a pilot scheme which seeks to reduce unemployment and boost the local employment. The scheme will use every type of grant and financial assistance available, both industrial and nonindustrial. Preliminary details of the project were given by planning director Mr William Ferguson at Angus District Council’s planning and development committee meeting last week. The scheme will be jointly devised by the SDA and the regional and district councils.

At Brechin Infirmaries on Wednesday, March 20, WRVS Long Service Medals were presented to Mrs Frances Dalgetty and Mrs Catherine Millar. Mrs A Buchan, Local Organiser, presented the medals in recognition of 15 years’ service with the WRVS.
