Forfar Athletic Football Club is continuing its redevelopment of Station Park with moves towards upgrading the hospitality facilities.

The upgrade will follow a new artificial pitch and new floodlight system that have been installed recently.

The club’s board has been working hard on the project that will completely redevelop and upgrade the current hospitality facilities in time for the beginning of the 2014/15 season.

Alastair Donald, Forfar Athletic chairman, said: “This will be a substantial investment for the club to undertake not only in man hours but financially especially in that it follows hard on the heels of the pitch replacement and the installation of new floodlights.

“It is our intention to develop out a facility which will split into six separate rooms thus retaining the individual room feel that exists and is enjoyed on match days but within this arrangement have a 48 seat function room which could expand out to accommodate parties of close on 100.

“A full bar facility will also be incorporated and needless to say we are keen to let these rooms out to the general public, local organisations and businesses outwith match days.

“The facility will also be available for hire along with the pitch which is already enjoying good hire uptake through our ‘Station Park Experience’ partnership.

“In the future we intend to develop the concept of a corporate lounge for local businesses and individuals to use and would welcome input as we start to shape this arrangement.”

There will be two short presentations about the project held at the Station Park boardroom on February 21 and March 10 from 7.30 p.m. onwards. If you are interested in helping with the project and finding out more e-mail
