Pupils’ favourite things about Forfar

Waiting for Video...

Primary seven pupils at Langlands Primary School answered Forfar Community Council’s challenge to design a poster advertising their ‘five favourite things about Forfar’.

As the theme for this year’s Civic Pride Awards presented by the council, the pupils came up with some thought-provoking and, at times, amusing suggestions for what they feel should be ranked in the top five.

The entries were judged by community councillors Freda Napier and Alastair Cormie, along with Forfar Dispatch reporter Janet Thomson, and the presentation of prizes was made at morning assembly at the school on Friday.

In first place was Andrea Storrier who received a £20 Asda gift token, followed by Andrew Stirling (£15) in second place and Zoe Ward (£10) in third.

Three ‘highly commended’ awards of a £5 vouchers were presented to Owen MacFarlane, Eve Danielle Stewart and Shayne Carnegie.

Commenting on this year’s entries, Community Council chairman Mrs Isobel Ross said: “A lot of thought went in to the posters and they were all of a very high

“This is the second year running we have run this award and all the entries will be on display in Forfar Library during the summer.”

The pupils listed a number of aspects of Forfar - from Forfar Loch, Station Park and the Forfar Bridie to Balmashanner and the pantomime dame.

Mrs Ross attended the prizegiving along with fellow community councillors Freda Napier, James Gray-Cheape and Mike Lawson.
