Univer­sal en­joy­ment

Rutherglen Reformer - - Summer Memories -

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.
