MONIFIETH’S War Memorial has been recognised by veterans as the most cared for in Scotland.

The monument won two competitions held this year by the Royal British Legion Scotland in the category of ‘best kept war memorial, large community with gardens’.

First was the Angus and Perthshire competition, judged by local British Legion representatives, while the second was the national competition judged by Royal British Legion Scotland headquarters.

The presentation of the national trophy was accepted by Mr Craig Wood, secretary of the Monifieth branch, as part of the Keep Scotland Beautiful awards ceremony held in the Rothesay Pavilion on the Isle of Bute last Monday.

Mr Wood said: “The Royal British Legion (Scotland) Monifieth branch would like to thank Mr Murray Duguid, parks services officer for Angus Council and his team of gardeners, for the effort that they have put in to make this win possible.”

The trophy is now on display at Monifieth Access office.
