In memory of Loraine

editorial image

THIS year will see a new open choir class for primary schools at the Arbroath and District (Competitive) Musical Festival which opens in the Webster Memorial Theatre on Wednesday (March 9).

Our picture shows Sheena Guthrie, chairman of the festival executive committee, accepting a trophy for this new class from St Thomas Primary School, in memory of Mrs Loraine Cant, who was not only a member of St Thomas staff but also a great supporter of all music in Arbroath.

Mrs Cant, sadly, died of cancer a few years ago. Miss Lesley Hood, headteacher, and the festival organisers felt that this was a fitting memorial for her contribution to music.

Pictured at the hand-over are, from left - Miss Hood, Mollie Gordon, Rebecca Bowick, Sheena Guthrie, Kealan Aitken and Abigail Duncan.
