Sea change for Flag Week

THERE will be a departure from the traditional format of the Arbroath RNLI Flag Week collection this year.

Instead of the usual house-to-house collection in aid of the Arbroath Lifeboat crew, local businesses have been approached for help.

A number of businesses have agreed to display RNLI Lifeboat collection boxes for the duration of Flag Week which commences on Monday, June 24.

If any businesses would like to take part and have yet to be contacted about carrying a collection box call flag secretary Kath Hughes on 01241 873732.

Arbroath’s outlying villages will still be covered by volunteers throughout the week and there will also be the usual collections in Arbroath High Street and the local superstores on Friday, June 28, and Saturday, June 29.
