Members of Edzell/Lethnot Parish Church Woman’s Guild held a party in Inglis Memorial Hall for the senior ladies of the village. Brechin High School choir entertained with a programme of solos, duets, choruses, recitations, dances and instrument music.

The Countess of Dalhousie on Saturday sat down to Christmas dinner with 250 of Brechin’s senior citizens - the Earl was unable to accompany her as he was ill with influenza. A very happy meal it was. The East Mill Hall, again kindly lent by Matrix Engineering, looking particularly attractive. This was the second of the two Christmas dinners provided by the Old Age Pensions Association, the first being on the evening before when 200 members of the Association attended.
