At a meeting of Brechin Education board last Friday it was reported that, following representations by the Board, a ‘stop’ sign had now been erected at the end of Duke Street where it joined Latch Road and Brechin Town Council had put up warning signs at both ends of St Andrew Street. Among topics discussed at the meeting was the proposal to make alterations to Damacre Road School buildings to adapt them for use as a Community Centre.

The opportunity of hearing the County Youth Choirs and Orchestra is one that comes all too rarely in Brechin, so it was exciting news that Mr Richard Evans, County Director of Music, was to bring the Intermediate Youth Orchestra to the Mechanics’ Hall for the opening of the Arts Guild.
