One of the happiest gatherings of Civic Week was on Saturday afternoon when Brechin and Edzell Brownies celebrated the diamond jubilee of their movement at Brechin Castle. Guests were Mrs T. S. Sampson, County Commissioner, Miss P. Walker, Edzell District Commissioner, members of the Local Association and Brownie Scouts and helpers from Edzell Base.

Following the Civic Week inaugural service last Sunday the opportunity was taken to present Ian Duthie of 1st Brechin Scout Troop with his Chief Scout’s Award. The presentation was made by Provost Buchan in the former Bank Street playground, in the presence of members of the Town Council, Guildry Incorporates and Ian’s fellow Scouts.
