A Highly commended certificate has been gained by Edzell in this year’s Britain in Bloom competition. Edzell was also the county winner. There is great disappointment in Edzell, however, that this year the village, which for two years has had the distinction of being adjudged the bonniest in Scotland, Was this year pipped by Muchalls, Kincardenshire, in the northern area contest.

Prunella of Brechin laid on a very attractive fashion show in Montrose last Wednesday forenoon. The effort was organised by the Montrose branch of the Save The Children Fund. Six models (two Montrose) showed a collection of summer wear.
The net profit for the ‘Save the children fund’ is £70.
