A showcase of Brechin, giving local folk the chance to create ‘a vision for Brechin 2020’, set up by the community council is drawing to a close.

Visitors to the showcase, who shared their hopes for, and concerns about the city, are being thanked by the community council for their opinions.

The community council would also like to thank the various groups, including young people from Maisondieu Primary School and the High School, who visited the showcase and took part in some very stimulating discussions.

A report, summing up the findings from the showcase will be produced and will be available at the next meeting of the group, on Tuesday, January 7, at 7.30 p.m. at the Damacre Centre, to which everyone is welcome.

Grahame Lockhart, convener of the community council, said: “I want to give a special thanks to Derek Harper, community council member, who has taken the lead in the showcase, and also our grateful thanks to Angus Council for supporting the showcase in many different ways”.

One of the main issues that has come out of the showcase is the future of the City Hall and to gauge the views of Brechiners regarding its future a questionnaire has been compiled and can be collected and returned to Sweets and Treats, Black’s of Brechin, Rosie’s Bakehouse and Bruce Brymer’s.

“It is very important that as many people as possible complete and return the questionnaire as this will help determine whether the City Hall has a future,” Grahame added.
