RESIDENTS at Ythanvale Care Home enjoyed their annual ‘Holiday Week’ last week, with a range of excursions, activities and events on offer.

Daily trips were arranged, culminating in an expedition to the Happy Plant Garden Centre at Mintlaw, and a ‘Strawberry Tea’ at the home. The event takes place every year with the stated intention of bringing a holiday to residents who might not otherwise have one.

The week also marked the departure of long-serving Friends of Ythanvale member Pat Wink, who is moving away from Ellon. Pat received thanks and flowers on Saturday from grateful staff and fellow Friends in a low-key ceremony at the home.

Ythanvale spokeswoman Anne Milne told the Times: “Pat has been a valued, active member of the Friends Group who will be very much missed.”
