Eighty-five members, helpers and carers attended the Valentine buffet dance held by the Caithness branch of Enable, the charity for people with learning disabilities.

Organisers were delighted with the "best turnout ever" for the annual event, which was held at the Royal British Legion club in Thurso with music provided by Colin McFeat.

Enable branch chairman Willie Mackay said: "The annual Valentine dance is always a popular event in our calendar but this year we had the best turnout ever of members, helpers and carers.

"Colin McFeat kept the music going and the floor was never empty except when the scrumptious light buffet was served.

"It was a night to remember and we now look forward to our next function on March 30 with an afternoon tea dance in Mackays Hotel, Wick.
