An OPEN day was held at Frank Jack Court in Peterhead recently, to mark the 30th anniversary of its opening on May 8, 1982.

The court was built by the British Legion and named after local gentleman Colonel Frank Jack. Officially opened by Air Vice- Marshall D.M.T MacDonald BC Chairman the Royal British Legion Scotland, for the use of ex- service personnel or their relatives.

It was later taken over by Carin Housing Association as ‘Sheltered Housing’ but is now re- designated Amenity Housing and is open for certain persons over 50 years of age.

The open day was a great success and was not only supported by the residents and their families but by many local businesses for which the residents are extremely grateful.

A total of more than £1,000 was raised which went into the funds for the use of residents and friends of the court.

Thanks were expressed to everyone who supported the event.
