This Tuesday there will be an open meeting for those taking part in Arbroath Relay For Life, and this will also present a great opportunity for people wishing to take part.

Relay chair Ian Angus said: ““When we started planning for this year’s Relay, I had a notional target of 30 registered teams, with the hope that we might get something approaching that. As we stand, with 26 registered, that target is within our reach. We are aware of a number of people who are considering entering a team and they are welcome to come along on Tuesday night to hear the latest updates.”
