The hall is situated at the junction of the B961 to Brechin, and the road to Monikie Village and Monikie Country Park. (Look at map).  The hall was erected for the use of the community, to the memory of the War Dead - a plaque to that effect can be seen just inside the front door.

(You may wish to visit the Commonwealth War Graves Commission website and research your ancestors who died in British military service.  The C.W.G.C. is a very busy website - please make sure that the first page is complete before proceeding further.)  The following names appear in the churches at Monikie and Newbigging.

The Hall Committee sometimes publish a newsletter which is available locally - ensure you get your copy.

In the following sections you will find the names of the local servicemen who gave the ultimate sacrifice for their country.  You may wish to look at more detail about most of these men.

“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends”.
