Have your say

A sheltered accommodation building dedicated to a former city councillor has been formally launched.

Dunedin Canmore named its new Granton building containing 68 flats offering care for older and vulnerable people after the late Granton councillor Elizabeth Maginnis.

Elizabeth Maginnis Court was formally launched at an event that was attended by Lothians MSP Margo MacDonald, Cardinal Keith O’Brien and Councillor Paul Edie.

Ewan Fraser, Chief Executive of Dunedin Canmore Group, said: “It is an honour to name this new development in memory of the late Councillor Elizabeth Maginnis. She shared many of the values held by Dunedin Canmore Group, such as a belief in assisting the vulnerable.”

Cardinal O’Brien said: “I hope and pray that much pleasure and, indeed, essential comforts would be given to all residents in this magnificent Elizabeth Maginnis Court.”
