Banff & Buchan MP Eilidh Whiteford dropped in on residents of Turriff's Erroll Court last Friday to help them celebrate 40 years since the complex first opened its doors.
The local MP was invited by staff to join in the celebrations scheduled for last Wednesday but unfortunately couldn't be there as she had to be in the House of Commons that day. However, Dr Whiteford made Erroll Court her first port of call after arriving in Aberdeen on Friday morning direct from London.
Turriff councillor Sandy Duncan, who attended the residents' party last Wednesday, accompanied the MP.
Speaking afterwards, Dr Whiteford said:
"It seems like a very happy place and it was a great pleasure to be able to share in some of the celebrations with the residents. They were keen to share with me a large pile of photographs taken at the party on Wednesday and it certainly looked like everyone had an enjoyable day."
