An Aberdeenshire Church of Scotland care home has been saved from closure. Balmedie House in Balmedie was one of 14 Church of Scotland run care homes rated economically unviable and scheduled for closure, but at the eleventh hour Aberdeenshire Council has agreed to give Balmedie House a grant of £36,000 this year and £23,000 next year. Balmedie House, one of the first residential homes in Scotland, opened in 1937.
