Pipers Eilidh and Heather arrived on Christmas Eve and played outside the Home, treating Residents and Colleagues to an incredible performance.

The two schoolgirls got everyone in the Christmas spirit thanks to their mastery of the bagpipes.

There was also a wonderful visit from members of the community who donned fancy dress for the occasion.

On the 23rd December, locals arrived to sing carols from a distance and send Christmas wishes to the Residents, who were bowled over by the amount of support.

Home Manager Carol Barr said the wonderful gestures from the community had lifted spirits.

Carol said: “We all feel fortunate to work and live in such a close-knit and caring community.

“The people of Victoria Road went all out to make Residents feel special – they sang carols, wrote cards and got all dressed up.

“We spotted Santas, elves, reindeer and even Olaf from Frozen outside! It was incredibly kind and thoughtful.”

Meanwhile, Carol paid tribute to the bagpipers, saying the girls were sensational.

Carol said, “Eilidh and Heather were terrific – they are brilliant musicians.

“There’s nothing quite like hearing the bagpipes played beautifully to get you in the party spirit. We are so grateful to them for coming to perform for us.”
