Aberlemno visit

Have your say

Members of Monifieth Local History Society visited the wonderful Pictish stones at Aberlemno last Wednesday.

As well as viewing the three stones by the roadside, they visited the Kirkyard for the superb stone there. They also enjoyed seeing inside the Kirk and the gravestones from the 17th and 18th centuries.

The ‘Doors Open’ weekend was a busy time in the House of Memories with a good number of visitors. A heritage walk around Monifieth was held on Wednesday as part of the Open Doors programme.

Next Wednesday (September 25), at 7 p.m., David Henry will be giving a talk in the Community Cabin on the topic ‘The Hill Fort at Nechtansmere’. Members and non- members are welcome. Entry £3.

Rotary speaker

The speaker at Wednesday’s meeting of Carnoustie Rotary Club in the Station Hotel was Dundee Rotarian, Jim Wilson, who used sporting anecdotes to explain the well known expression ‘The Boy Done Good’.

President Jim Waugh was in the chair and Grant Ramsay gave the vote of thanks.

BOSS watch

Another Carnoustie golfer has received a limited-edition BOSS watch after scoring a hole-in-one in a recent competition.

Carnoustie Golf Club member Steven Peffers (38), scored his ace on the 148-yard, par-three 13th, and the two-handicapper was rewarded with membership of the exclusive BOSS Watches H1 Club and a specially-commissioned, commemorative timepiece.
