FORMER Bellsbank Primary pupils and staff enjoyed one last look around their old school on Saturday, January 19.

Councillor Drew Filson had organised Big Bellsbank Primary Get The Gither which saw the community come together and share their memories of the school.

“I would just like to say thanks to all who came along on the day,” said Cllr Filson. “There were about 300 people turned up from far and wide, even England.

“Everyone left a painted hand print on the wall so that a little piece of them goes with the old school when it is demolished, it will be sad to see.

“But with the new £6.4m primary school due to start in February, it will be a great step forward for Bellsbank.”
