Bright sparks from Hydro Electric


STAFF from the Hydro Electric shop in Montrose are offering their help to the community as part of their company’s ‘Community at Heart’ scheme.

The three are all keen to give a helping hand to community projects by being volunteers to work for a day to help make a difference.

Shop manager Carrie Milne, and colleagues Kellie Gorman and Mairi Duthie are looking for projects that they can turn their hands to.
