IT WILL be a sad day for the Urquhart family when they close the door of their Aberdeen home for the final time.

With son Lewis, 20, working as an apprentice sign maker and daughter Hannah, 16, studying to become a beauty therapist at Aberdeen College, the family is hoping to move to the outskirts of the city. “It’s going to be an emotional upheaval, but we are excited about finding our next home,” Clayton said.
