A charity that works to alleviate loneliness among the older generation is aiming to launch a group in a north-east town.
Contact the Elderly offers a lifeline of friendship to socially isolated older people through monthly Sunday afternoon tea parties.
The charity, which organises scores of free tea parties all over Scotland, already has groups across the north-east but is planning a new group in Alford.
The team are extending an invitation to locals who would like to join the party as guests or volunteers.
