The Meffan needs your help!

To commemorate the centenary of the First World War the Meffan Museum and Gallery will be displaying objects from the museum collection.

However they would also like to get the local community involved.

A spokesman for the museum said: “We are looking for objects, photographs, documents, costumes and stories that have been passed down through generations which would help tell the story of what life was like in Forfar during the First World War.

“If you have anything that you think would be of interest we would love to hear from you.

“Why not pop into the Meffan Museum and have a chat with the staff to see how you can help make our war display as interesting and engaging as possible?”

The Meffan is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Situated in the heart of Forfar’s historic town centre is The Meffan which was built in 1898 as a bequest from the daughter of Provost Meffan.

Originally Forfar’s library and museum, the building is now a lively art gallery and museum.

The building is much loved by the community with many clubs and societies meeting here.

Two galleries are devoted to Art exhibitions. Every month new art exhibitions are staged and these ever changing exhibitions bring to Forfar the work of a range of contemporary Scottish artists.
