It has been an incredibly challenging time for all of us, and we would like to thank our dedicated staff for all of their hard work, and the families of our residents for their continued support, for which we are so grateful. As we approach the end of the year, we wanted to take the opportunity to pay our respects to those who have sadly passed away from this awful virus, both from within our Home and all over the world. To honour those we have lost, we will be holding a remembrance ceremony, where we will observe a one-minute silence on the 30th November, St Andrew’s Day, at 7:30pm. The service, which will take place outdoors, will include drummers and a piper who will play traditional Scottish songs, for our residents to watch and enjoy from their windows while remaining socially distanced. Scotch broth soup, Haggis, Neeps and Tatties will also be on the menu. Although we cannot be together, we can unite in spirit. It is with this in mind that we invite you to join us in observing the one-minute silence in your own homes, and perhaps light a symbolic candle in remembrance. If you feel comfortable, please do share any images or messages with us to pass on to our team and residents.

Together, we will get through this.
