Uniformed youth organisations in Banff and Macduff visited care homes and sheltered housing complexes to help residents celebrate The Queen's Platinum Jubilee.

The aim of the visits were to enable the residents, who may not have been able to attend public events, to mark the milestone royal occasion.

Banff Brownies, Guides and Macduff Scouts visited Banff Care Home, Airlie Gardens, Doocot View, Doune Court and Dounemount Care Home.

The young people talked with the residents and were able to celebrate The Queen's 70-year reign with them.

Brownies leader Heather Farquhar said: "The girls and leaders all had a great time during the visits.

"At Doocot View the warden chose our youngest Brownie, who is seven years old, to cut the cake.

"The girls chatted away with residents and are going to go back for social events.

"We also visited Doune Court and gave the residents cakes and have plans to help them with gardening later this year."
