Meeting to ensure partnership’s future

A special meeting has been called for this Monday to try to secure the future prosperity of the Forfar and Area Partnership.

The meeting has been organised to try to attract new members to the group after it failed to form a committee at its annual general meeting in April.

Set up in 2005 to bring together local voluntary organisations with the private and public sectors to help realise the town’s economic, social and environmental potential, the partnership has also been supporter through local sponsorship to support local activities such as the successful Forfar Gala Week. Its successes have also included the development of the Friday Night Project for local youngsters, the Band Slam music project and the foundation of the Forfar Fairtrade Forum.

The meeting, which will be open to all interested parties, will be held in the East and Old Church this Monday, July 29 at 7pm and further information is available from Fiona McCash by e-mailing
