MAD hoping for donation

MONIFIETH Amateur Dramatics could be in line for a £5,000 donation from Angus Council to help them finalise the purchase of the former British Legion premises in the town.

At the neighbourhood services committee meeting yesterday (Thursday), it was recommended that members approved the funding in exchange for 12 full day uses of the facility during the next five years.

The society has already raised £45,000 for the facility, of which £21,000 has been used to upgrade the building.

A sum of £16,250 has been paid towards the purchase with a further £9,500 available from show proceeds.

It is hoped a further £24,450 can be raised this year.
