Irene wants you on her list

A LOCAL lady has taken a step towards creating a comprehensive list of clubs, meetings and contacts in Montrose. It is called ‘About Us in Montrose’.

Irene Birse set about compiling the list as part of her Discovery Silver Award work. It has categories for activities daily, weekly and monthly, as well as those which take place only during school term time, such as Seals swimming and dancing classes.

Where appropriate, there are contact names and telephone numbers.

The Discovery Group meets in the community learning office at 51 John Street at 2pm on the last Friday each month. And yes - that is on the list!

Having already gained her bronze award, Irene’s topics for silver are volunteer, hobby, recreation and discovery.

If you want a copy of the list, or think your organisation should be included on it, e-mail Irene on

A few copies are in the Review office.
