Brechin’s youth drop in centre The Attic recently celebrated their 10th birthday by holding a party in their premises for those who have been involved over the last decade.

The youth project has been very successful with over 100,000 drop ins throughout the years.

Lord Lieutenant of Angus Georgina Osborne commented on the night that “every town in Angus should have a centre like the Attic”.

During Lady Caroline Southesk’s speech she thanked the committee, volunteers, staff and all those who attended the evening as well as thanking them for their support in providing such a wonderful service within Angus.

Kay Robertson of The Attic said: “The evening was celebrated by the committee, volunteers, staff, local emergency services who work with the Attic and other members of the public who have supported us throughout the years.”

Two of the guests who were honoured to be there to help celebrate the evening were Kelly Bremner and Lorraine Mitchell - two of the original members who helped to set up the Attic.

“Along with the celebration for volunteers etc., we also held a evening of fun games, pool competitions and provided cakes for the youths on the Friday,” continued Kay.

“The evening saw 75 youths celebrating our birthday and an enjoyable evening was had by all. We all look forward to the next 10 years and what it has to bring.”
