The minibus which Brechin High School plans to buy has jumped in price by over £1000, from £2300 to £3350 Angus Education Committee was told last week. The Education Committee had agreed to meet the whole cost of the bus until the School had raised funds to pay their half share. The School had approached the county Committee as to whether they would be willing to make a large contribution. 
The Education Committee has agreed to give £1500 provided that the minibus is bough in the current financial year.

Brechin Cathedral Woman’s Guild were naturally delighted with the result of Saturday’s coffee morning - £240 crowned their busy morning’s work. The hall was thronged and buying at the stalls was very brisk.
