Inverurie Rotary Club have been helping Bennachie View Care Home as lockdown continues to ease.

With the Government gradually easing restrictions, care home residents can now meet with visitors in the gardens but with the changeable weather we often experience, some shelter for the visits is needed.

The Rotary Club have stepped in to solve this problem and help Bennachie View Care Home bydonating two of their unused gazebos.

Set up in the gardens and securely tied down with pegs that would not be out of place with a circus big-top, the gazebos have now been in use since July 13 and have been a success with residents and visitors to the home.

Rotarians Stuart Watson, Peter Donaldson and Jim Sommerville visited on July 17 to officially handover the gazebos to the care home.

A visitor booking schedule is kept by the staff and residents have been meeting friends and relatives outside for the first time in months.

A spokesperson for the Inverurie Rotary Club said:

“The staff have been doing a fantastic job during the pandemic and we’re pleased to be able to lend our support to them and the residents.”
