Actors’ success recognised

Actors and directors who staged a drama in April promoting the ‘safe and sound’ message for Angus people were thanked in Forfar last week.

The successful drama event comprised four scenarios relating to safety which were acted out by adults with learning disabilities, and members of the Angus Gold forum. The event was recorded and a DVD produced.

Margaret Wells, independent chair of the Angus Adult Protection Committee (AAPC) said:

“It is very important for everyone to know how to keep safe and well. This DVD will highlight many of the issues we all need to be aware of, including how to deal with bogus callers, preventing falls and getting the right help when we ourselves, or someone we know, is at risk of harm.”

If you live in Angus and would like a copy of the DVD, contact the council’s ACCESSLine on 08452777778.
