Have you seen this violin’s owner? #LenzieLostAndFound

Our development company High Street Developments are converting a former school near Glasgow into luxury apartments and – while doing so – have found a violin! Now we are urging the public to take note and help reunite a violin with its rightful owner.

Discovered at the former Lenzie Primary School in East Dunbartonshire, the violin and dark green case were unearthed when the building was being prepared for refurbishment.

Colin Jack, our Regional Director for Scotland said: “This has been quite an unusual find.  Given that the development was formerly a school, we don’t know if it belonged to the music department or a pupil.  We are asking anyone who attended Lenzie School to get in touch, so that we can reunite the violin with its owner.”

We have also posted a picture of the violin on our Twitter and Facebook accounts and hope that others will share this too.  We really want this musical story to end on a high note! Anyone with any information relating to the violin is asked to contact us.

About the development

Featuring 11 new build apartments in the original school building and a further nine in an adjacent three storey extension, Moncrieff View – as the new development is known – is situated, minutes from Lenzie train station, offering commuter links to Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The two and three bedroom apartments at Moncrieff View benefit from a number of original features including the staircases, sash windows and brickwork.  To date the development has generated over 900 enquiries, which has prompted the developer to host at launch event at Lenzie Golf Club (G66 5DA) on the 23rd – 24th August, between 10.30am – 4pm.  At this event, attendees will be able to view plans for the development and the house styles available.
