STAFF and residents at an Easter Ross care home have staged their own public show of appreciation for a group of key workers important to them.

The coronavirus crisis has prompted regular Thursday night Clap for Carers events which offer members of the public a chance to show their appreciation for NHS staff working at the front line of the public health pandemic.

That has been extended by some to show appreciation for other key workers helping to keep the country moving, out food on the shelves and keep us connected during the lockdown.

Staff and residents at the Innis Mhor residential care home in Tain took time out to clap "for all the staff at the Tain and District and Tain and Fearn practices who are continuing to support and care for us all through this tough time".

It was also for all the local supermarkets, banks "and our wee treasured postie". They said: "You make our lives so much better."

Their thoughtful gesture has touched many who watched a video shared by the home.

Janet Henderson wrote: "Well done. Thank you for all you do for our old folk. You are amazing."

Maggie Smith added: "And we're clapping for all you who are working so hard to keep all the residents well."
