A bus shelter for Barry, vandalism at Arbirlot and tarmac for Auchmithie were subjects debated by Carnoustie District Council at Arbroath. Barry, it was decided, will have to take its place in the queue for a bus shelter. Concern was expressed at vandalism on two wooden footbridges over Elliot burn at Arbirlot. It was felt that the blame lay with an older element from outside the village. A request has been made from Auchmithie for tarmac in the village square at the fountain.
