Residents at a Renfrew care home have been celebrating as staff staged their latest party on Friday.

The team at Craigielea Care Home, in French Street, organised live entertainment and served up tasty treats to mark its 18th 'birthday.'

Tommy Twigg kept spirits high by performing a variety of classic songs for the care home's elderly residents, as well as modern hits for younger residents with physical disabilities.

Deputy manager Dorica Mukuma and resident Kenneth Hogan, who have both been at the care home since it opened, helped cut the birthday cake.

Sarah Speirs, service manager at Craigielea Care Home, described the party as "a really good day for everyone".

She told The Gazette: "Families joined the staff and residents to celebrate and there were probably around 80 people at the event.

"There was party food, with lots of different cakes, scones, Swiss rolls, sausage rolls and sandwiches.

"Around 80% of our staff have been here since day one of the care home opening and they've said that there has been a lot of positive changes since then."
