This summer, the children of Whitehills Primary School invite families and friends to embark on an adventure through Forfar by taking part in their new fun Ice Cream Trail.

Whitehills Primary School’s talented children, from nursery to primary 7, have designed and painted 16 beautiful ice cream cones, each representing a different aspect of Forfar. The cones are placed across the town, waiting to be discovered along three walking trails of varying difficulty – easy, moderate and hard.

The trails are a great opportunity to explore Forfar, boosting health and wellbeing and enjoying quality outdoor time with family and friends while learning something new about the town. Each cone features a QR code that when scanned, provides information about the location or offers a fun activity to complete.

This fantastic project has been made possible thanks to the generous donations from local businesses and community members, who provided materials and paint, and are also hosting the cones.

Head Teacher of Whitehills Primary School, Coureen Peters said:

“This initiative encourages families and community members to get out and about, exploring and appreciating the local area. The hard work of the children at Whitehills Primary School with support from school staff, the parent council and the local community, have made this wonderful, free, activity for everyone to enjoy this summer.

“We faced a bit of hiccup when some of the cones went missing initially. However, thanks to the efforts of the community, I am pleased to say the trail can go ahead as planned. It’s wonderful to see the community come together to support this initiative, and I am sure everyone will enjoy exploring Forfar through the eyes of our young artists.

“Thank you to local businesses Ritchies, Ryjack and Jewson and participating venues that made this project possible.”

Lynsey Pattie, Chair of Whitehills Parent Partnership said:

“The Whitehills Parent Partnership is delighted to have supported the development of the Ice Cream Trail. It is a great opportunity for our children to take part in an activity that has benefits to the wider community. Being able to support this trail during the summer holidays provides families with a free fun activity that can be done time and time again.”
