Peterhead North & Rattray councillor Anne Allan has welcomed the opening of Peterhead’s new day centre for older people, Kingscliff, at 70 King Street.

The day centre is the result of ten years of planning and fundraising by council staff, volunteers and local people and replaces provision at Ugievale and Roanheads.

Kingscliff has a large day room, dining room and patio area and has places for up to eighteen service users per day, five days per week and is run by Aberdeenshire Council and supported by volunteers.

People with varied level of needs are catered for whether its mobility issues, sensory impairment, memory loss or dementia. The day service also offers a wide range of activities individually or in group settings from reminiscence projects to baking, gardening and light exercise.

Work on the day centre was completed in February and some service users have already been enjoying the improved facilities. The name Kingscliff was suggested by a service user and merges the street name of King Street with the old name for the building ‘Clifton’.

Welcoming the official opening which takes place tomorrow (Monday), Councillor Allan said:

"I am delighted to support this. It is great to see what local folk can do when they set their minds to something.

"It is a modern facility that was much needed in Peterhead, and I am sure that the folk using it will benefit from it being there."
