Mike Holland, treasurer of the Watson-Watt Society of Brechin, has paid tribute to the many ordinary individuals, groups and small firms that have made donations to the Society over the last few years. He was accepting a cheque for £60 from Brechin Arms being the proceeds from a collecting can on the popular pub’s counter.
‘This is the third cheque we have received from the bar and its generous customers who have now donated a sum in excess of £300. While over the past years we have received a few very large donations , the bulk of our funds has been given in smaller amounts and we greatly appreciate this.’
The Society has now almost reached the necessary sum to have the already completed statue placed on a specially constructed plinth in St. Ninian’s Square. It is hoped that this will be done sometime in May of this year.
