Hundreds Turn Out for Academy Court Open Day in Forfar

More than 700 people came along to see the new Academy Court properties at Saturday’s Open Day in the former Chapelpark school buildings.


Many people came along because it was their old school, both former pupils and teachers alike.


The fine weather added to the enjoyment of the people who attended, who spoke with Housing staff about the new properties and shared their own personal memories of the old school.



We welcome the new tenants to the development and wish them well in their new homes.


We thank the people of Forfar for joining us for this event and for their interest in our work.
