Brechin District Education Sub-committee are to continue to press for a hot water supply for all schools in the area. This was agreed at the meeting on Thursday, when it was pointed out that there was no hot water supply in (amongst others) the High School primary department at Townhead, at Bank Street Annexe, nor at Edzell Junior Secondary School.

Brechin District Council at its meeting last Thursday agreed to suggest to Angus Roads Committee that there be a double white line on the Brechin-Laurencekirk road from the Templewood road-end to south of the Trinity filling station. Major Douglas Murray described it as one of the most dangerous roads in the district.
