Monklands pensioners were among dozens who tucked into a delicious Christmas lunch, courtesy of Mears Scotland.

The social housing repairs firm hosted its fourth annual gathering for the elderly at New College Lanarkshire's Motherwell campus'ML1 restaurant.

Forty residents from Contact the Elderly, Sporting Memories, Mears Care and Mears Supported Living were lucky enough to be in attendance.

The restaurant was beautifully decorated for the festive season and the students made a fantastic job of cooking and serving the meal.

The guests were looked after by Mears apprentices who made sure they were comfortable and assisted them to and from their transport, which was also provided by the property organisation.

North Lanarkshire Provost Jean Jones welcomed the guests and thanked Mears, and especially the apprentices, for making it such a lovely day.

Marion Gray, Contact the Elderly, Diamond and Monklands Group, said:"Once again Mears did us proud at their Christmas lunch. The tables were beautifully decorated, the meal was delicious and the young catering students were very kind and helpful."

Mears also presented all of the diners with a Christmas gift, much to the delight of everyone concerned.
