Diamond event details

MORE details of the Angus celebrations of Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations were revealed at Hillside, Dun and Logie Pert Community Council by Depute Lieutenant Mrs Robina Addison.

It will be held at Glamis Castle on May 20, and there are plans to have a total of 14 pipe bands at the event, with three of them playing on the castle roof.

There will be a stage in front of the castle.

The bands and the youth groups, in a grand parade, will come down the drive. As they approach the castle, members of the Royal family will come out.

During the afternoon there will be dancers, choirs and pipers on the stage. Various workshops such as drumming, harp, handicraft, magic, lace-making and even golf.

There will be a tented village and each Angus burgh will have a marquee.

Councillor David May told us: “The plans are without doubt exciting and the day promises to be spectacular.

“I am sure there will be a massive attendance.

“Mrs Addison and Norman Fiddes, who gave the presentations, have developed even at this stage a huge variety of activities and are keen to get as many people as possible involved.

“Mrs Addison has fully demonstrated from all she has done in the past that she is the best person to lead this event, and what she said at the community council shows that she has the vision to make sure this is a truly great community event.”
