Emergency services hope to avoid own goal


TAYSIDE Police along with local emergency services in Montrose will take part in a community football match against Young Montrose on Saturday.

The kick-off takes place at 3pm at Links Park and the public are welcome to attend and support the event.

Entry to the match is free and staff from Tayside Police, Tayside Fire and Rescue, HM Coastguard, Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) and the Scottish Ambulance Service will all be taking part in the game.

Young Montrose provides young people aged between 10 and 25-years-old with support and assistance and encourages active involvement in the local community.

It is hoped that this event will be a positive and engaging experience for the participants and it will also be an opportunity for Young Montrose to raise funds though donations provided on the day.
