Think there’s nothing to do in Forfar - then think again and head to the Reid Hall on Saturday for the ‘What’s On In Forfar’ event.

The free session is open to all ages and will include lots of interactive fun, a variety of stalls, refreshments and a free prize draw.

There are a range of groups involved - from family learning to Forfar Dramatic Society, Forfar in Flower to firewalkers, Guides and Scouts to adult classes.

Community cooking groups will provide refreshments in the café area and the communities youth group will host a non alcoholic bar.

The information sharing event has been organised by the Forfar Pride in Place network and will run from 11am to 4pm.

Established after the Future Forfar charrette, the group wants to get a picture of what the town has to offer in respect of what there is to do, see, enjoy and to get involved in.

Supported by Angus Council’s communities team, it comprises of groups, organisations, businesses and individuals who want to boost awareness about the many goings-on in Forfar.

The event is a chance for groups, organisations and businesses to showcase what they are about, what they have to offer and what people can get involved in locally.

Recently, the network has identified a central information notice point at the Buttermarket, where people can hand in posters, flyers and information and also find out about what’s going on.

There is also a What’s On in Forfar Facebook page that has up to date information and a website is also planned.

As part of their information drive and a desire to get as many people as possible social media savvy, the network is holding weekly Facebook information drop-in sessions at the Plough on Tuesdays (7-8pm) and a drop-in at Montrose Road Centre on Wednesdays (1.30 to 3pm). They are free of charge and open to all.

Any groups which want to take a stall (for a £10 fee) at the information sharing event on Saturday, or who want more information should contact Pride in Place officer Jennifer Anderson on 01575 577244 or email andersonj1@angus.gov.uk
