Edzell has again gone forward to the Scottish “Britain in Bloom” competition regional round. It is one of the 16 county winners chosen by the Scottish Women’s Rural Institutes. Judging takes place this week.

The Manse garden again proved a very attractive setting for the biennial ‘summer fayre’ organised in aid of the funds of Edzell Lethnot Church on Saturday. The weather was cool but still very pleasant - it was a great relief after the heavy ran on Friday night. The fete attracted the usual big gathering of folk from the village, the glens and the surrounding countryside as well as friends from Brechin and all thoroughly enjoyed their afternoon in the friendly atmosphere of the fete. The event realised over £800.
