The many Brechin friends and admirers of Mrs Ruth Lumsden from the Fair Maid’s House, Perth, will be delighted to know she is returning to the district again with her fund of interesting information and anecdotes about antiques. 
This very talented lady has agreed to chair a panel of distinguished local experts in the Inglis Memorial Hall, Edzell, in aid of the British Sailor’s Society.

There is to be a speed-up in the roadworks at the junction of the Edzell road and the main road at the Northwater Bridge. 
Kincardineshire Roads Surveyor told the Roads Committee the delay had been caused by the time necessary to acquire one of the pieces of land required.
