Pupils’ favourite things about Forfar

Have your say

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 winners are pictured kneeling - Zoe Ward, 3rd place; Andrea Storrier, 1st place; Andrew Stirling, 2nd place.  Eve Stewart, Shayne Carnegie and Owen McFarlane were highly commended and are pictured standing with members of Forfar Community Council.  Standing from left are - James Gray-Cheape, Eve Stewart, Freda Napier, Shayne Carnegie, Isobel Ross, Owen McFarlane and Mike Lawson.

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
standard.

“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.
