A pop­u­lar venue

The Courier & Advertiser (Angus and The Mearns Edition) - - Comment -

“Glamis Cas­tle has been a pop­u­lar venue for var­i­ous out­door events over the years,” emails reader Andy Inglis. “The re­cent Courier ar­ti­cle about the car rally there re­minded me of a rally of young Save the Chil­dren Fund sup­port­ers at Glamis Cas­tle in 1985 which I at­tended.

“Groups of young­sters who had been in­volved in col­lect­ing funds for the Save the Chil­dren char­ity were in­vited to the rally. One per­son from each of the groups would meet and chat with HRH Princess Anne.

“The pho­to­graph be­low left, taken at the rally, shows HRH Princess Anne, who has been Pres­i­dent of Save the Chil­dren UK since 1970, chat­ting to some of the chil­dren.

“Per­haps your read­ers may re­mem­ber that par­tic­u­lar rally and pos­si­bly recog­nise the young peo­ple in the pho­to­graph.

“Apart from see­ing HRH Princess Anne, the rally was sup­ported by a pipe band, a group of ma­jorettes from Kin­ross and other spec­ta­tor at­trac­tions.”
