Local Therapets Attend Guide Dogs 50th Anniversary Event
Area representatives Norma Murry and Harry Grieg attended a fantastic day at Guide Dogs in Forfar. This was to celebrate the Forfar centres 50th Anniversary of Guide Dogs being trained in Scotland. CCST representatives were their celebrating with them and at the same time carrying out some PR work informing others of the Therapet Service and letting them meet the wonderful local Therapets and chat to their volunteer owners.
The original Guide Dogs training centre, which stood on the old Dundee road, was opened on 19 July 1965 by HRH Princess Alexandra. In 2008 when Guide Dogs officially opened our flagship Forfar Training School in the Orchardbank Business Park Princess Alexandra again performed the honours.
