GRAFFITI art knows no bounds in Kelty with elderly care home residents learning new skills with a spray can.

Luckily they hadn't decided to take the law into their own hands and turn to vandalism, it was all above board and further proof that you're never too old to learn something new.

Residents of Benarty View, a Four Seasons care home in the village, have also been strutting their stuff on the dance floor, taking photos, learning languages and making pizzas, and they celebrated a raft of previously hidden talents at a special graduation ceremony.

Margaret Gimson, 74, said: “I can’t say I was that keen on school when I was younger but I’ve loved learning lots of new things and feel really proud of myself.

"My favourite activity has been the dancing sessions; I reckon I’d give those professionals on Strictly a run for their money!”

It's all part of a Love Learning programme and they were able to showcase their achievements at the graduation, which was also attended by friends and family, staff and members of the local community.

Karen Bell, the manager of Benarty View, said: “Continuing to learn in older age has many benefits. As well as keeping our brains healthy, acquiring new knowledge gives a real sense of purpose and achievement.

"Our Magic Moments activities programme includes lots of opportunities to get involved, learn new things and above all have great fun together.”

The initiative has been run across all Four Seasons homes and residents have praised the opportunity to learn new things.

Resident Joseph Russell, 86, added: “They say you can’t teach an old dog new tricks but I’ve learnt so many new things this year.

"I can now speak a bit of Spanish and French, know how to keep fit by exercising in my chair and I even learned how to make the best pizza in the world from a chef in Rome.”
