Rutherglen Universal Connections are delighted after a hugely successful summer.
The youth centre had a packed programme throughout the school holidays which was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
In the centre there were lots of exciting activities including clay modelling, jewellery making, hama beads, crystal art, plus lots of games of hide and seek in the dark.
During the better weather the bouncy castle in the car park was a huge hit with everybody.
The young people also had a great time on various trips. Everyone loved Combat City, Blair Drummond, Tubing and M&D’s.
The M Factor also went bowling and tried out the golf driving range.
They even got a surprise visit from Mr and Mrs McLean from Rutherglen High, who turned up to join in the fun.
This year Universal Connections organised free swimming every Wednesday.
Staff were delighted that so many young people wanted to take part and try some physical exercise.
A spokesman said: “Perhaps they were inspired by the Commonwealth Games.”
On the final day the centre had a party and awards ceremony to bring the summer to a close.
Everyone enjoyed watching the DVD review, taking part in an awards ceremony, having pizza and a disco.
The overall winner of the summer was announced as Chloe Huskie.
This was due to her taking part in all the activities, never complaining and being a great role model to everyone around her.
Now the schools have returned it’s back to business for Universal Connections.
The youth centre will continue with its evening and weekend programme and should also have lots of new activities announced soon.
