The City of Brechin and District Community Council is awaiting the printing of 5,000 helpful and informative postcards.

The postcards will help local residents contact the correct organisations to report problems from pot-holes to fly-tipping and anti-social behaviour to flooding.

They will be available in the Parish Council Chambers (formerly the Registrar’s) later this week. as well as many local venues and you are encouraged to pick one up and keep it handy.

The Parish Council Chambers will be open this week until Friday from 1 to 7 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

The hours for the week commencing October 14 are Monday to Wednesday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Community council convener Grahame Lockhart commented: “This is an idea we considered some time ago and thanks to Pierangela Adam, one of our members, the cards are with a local printer and should be available by the end of the week.

“Our members thought this was a service we could provide for our community and we hope you will find it useful. We’ve included as many contacts as we think people are likely to need but welcome any additions for future reprints.

“It’s a size that fits easily into a jacket pocket or a handbag and we’ve incorporated blank spaces for the pole number and location of any streetlights that are causing a problem.

“We would also welcome feedback from the community to let us know if this has been a worthwhile exercise.”
