Angus County Council had written with regard to a site for the proposed new Eventide Home to replace St Drostan’s. Suggested sites ranged from beyond the new SSSHA scheme to Glencadam and Castle Street. A suggestion was made for the new home to be built in the grounds of St Drostan’s. Councillor Beattie pointed out that there was as much ground there as in any of the proposed sites and at present it was a big problem to get a gardener to keep it.

The 15 Guides of the 2nd Brechin Company under their Guider, Mrs M. Drummond, staged a very successful coffee morning in the City Hall. Altogether £45 was raised and it was decided to divide this between “good causes” chosen by the girls themselves.
