THE Wild West rode into Buckie as residents at a local care home enjoyed an afternoon of country music.

Residents and staff at Netherha Care Home transformed the lounge into a scene reminiscent of a Western movie with makeshift wagons, campfire cooking pots, cowboy hats and ‘wanted’ posters featuring some of the residents! Meanwhile country singer Doug Smith of One Man and He’s Doug entertained residents with a series of legendary country hits.

Caroline Cameron, activities manager at Netherha Care Home said: “We had great fun transforming the lounge into the wild west and residents had a great afternoon singing along to some country classics.”

For once the by now ubiquitous face masks worn by the staff as part of the Covid-19 regulations did not look too out of place when along with a stetson, they leant a certain outlaw look to the wearer.

The afternoon was the latest in a series of events held at Netherha Care Home during the course of the lockdown to help keep residents spirit up.
