Got any ideas for royal jubilee?

CARNOUSTIE community council met this week with the organisers of an important upcoming Royal anniversary, writes Johnston Ralston.

Her Majesty The Queen’s diamond jubilee celebration will be held in Glamis Castle on May 20 next year.

Robina Addison of the Gordon School of Dancing and Norman Fiddes of Pipemarch Limited, outlined proposals for the day of events.

Each of the seven Angus burghs will be allocated a large marquee in the tented village inside the grounds of Glamis Castle, and will accommodate a range of groups and individuals representative of each town.

Currently they are in the process of contacting and inviting all organisations, schools, clubs and interest groups in Carnoustie.

Local community council organiser Sue McMahon is keen for interested locals to get behind the event.

“This is an ideal opportunity for Carnoustie residents to showcase their skills, talent, enterprise and enthusiasm to the whole of Angus and beyond.

“The community council will call a meeting of all interested parties in the near future so that we can pick your brains and plan how we set up the marquee.”

In addition to the tented village there will be a grand parade of young people led by massed pipe bands from all over the country and a series of events throughout the day.

Admission on the day will be free and every youngster taking part will be given a commemorative medal. Anyone interested in taking part can contact Sue on 01241852549
