The newly-refurbished Bellfield care home, Banchory, will open its doors very soon after a major eight-month refurbishment.

All of Bellfield’s 30 residents will be relocated back to the new-look care home on May 20.

Bellfield, on three floors, will be state of the art in all areas, with care and comfort being paramount at the Crossreach Care home.

Local photographers Deeside Photographics, owned an managed by Logan and Julie Sangster, have recently sent out a facebook appeal for any local amateur photographer to send in local images , which may used as wall art for the new home.

Logan said: ‘‘ We asked for local scenes, which will create interest for some of the residents who may have dementia, and who may remember some of these places, and the photographs will simply be nice to hang on the new walls and create interest.

‘‘We have been overwhelmed by all the images that have been sent in by many local amateur photographers, some from young mums, retired pensioners, and people with a good eye to create some relly nice images.

‘‘We thank all the photographers who sent in their images for which we are very grateful.

“We wanted to do something lasting for the Bellfield as our mother, Fay, is now residing there, and the care she has had since she moved there three months ago has been outstanding.

“We have printed and framed over 30 large images, which will hang within the new Bellfield, but to give everyone a chance to see the photographs we have been given kind permission by Anne and David Brownie, of DFS sports in Banchory High Street, to hold a pop up gallery from the May 14 - 17,before the images go to their new home.’’

There will be a special preview evening, with drinks, for the Banchory Busness Association, the photographers, and guests , and then open afternoons for the general public.
