Residents of Modley House in Ellon were visited recently by Gordon MP Sir Malcolm Bruce to mark 25 years since he opened the sheltered housing complex.
Sir Malcolm said: “Modley House is to undergo major changes soon to become very sheltered housing, and I know that the residents are anxious to keep a lounge as they have lots of social activities.
“From my many visits to sheltered housing across the constituency over the years, I know that moving to sheltered housing can genuinely extend people’s lives and more importantly their active lives.
“I’ve seen people who may have been struggling in their homes, but moving to sheltered housing, where they still have their own front door but support when they need it.
“It gives them a spring back in their step.”
