Coun­cil ap­proves Glamis meet

The Courier & Advertiser (Fife Edition) - - NEWS -

An­gus has the “thanks of 2,500 Guides” in Scot­land af­ter al­low­ing a sold-out na­tional event to go ahead next month.

The Guide As­so­ci­a­tion of Scot­land will wel­come them to the en­vi­rons of Glamis Cas­tle on Au­gust 26, for Rise to the Chal­lenge.

They will range from five-year-old Rain­bows to adult mem­bers of the Tre­foil Guild.

But an ob­jec­tion from a mem­ber of the pub­lic meant its ap­pli­ca­tion for a pub­li­cen­ter­tain­ment li­cence had togo be­fore a spe­cial meet­ing of the coun­cil’s civic li­cens­ing board, heard dur­ing the re­cess pe­riod.

Coun­cil­lors heard com­mit­tee con­vener Craig Fother­ing­ham had “no prob­lem” with coach traf­fic pass­ing homes on the route, which was ob­jected to by an anony­mous res­i­dent.

It emerged con­cerns arose over use of the Kirk Wynd gate, in the heart of the vil­lage, but this was quelled by rep­re­sen­ta­tives who gave a Guide’s prom­ise to use the main gate only.

A coun­cil in­sider said: “Liv­ing next to one of Tay­side’s big­gest tourist at­trac­tions, I don’t think a few more coaches will pose any prob­lems.”

Coun­cil so­lic­i­tor Tina Mag­son said: “Ac­tiv­i­ties in­clude five zones dur­ing the day and a ‘fes­ti­val square’ where those at­tend­ing will be able to watch demon­stra­tions and per­for­mances.
