At the centre of it all

FAMILIES in search of activities during the festive holidays need look no further than Newton Mearns, according to the readers of Primary Times.

The Avenue shopping centre has been named as the best family friendly facility in Glasgow and the west of Scotland, and presented with a star award.

Centre manager Michelle McCabe commented: “I’m delighted that the family friendly initiatives we’ve introduced of late – from free workshops and entertainment throughout school holidays to our family funday Sundays featuring mall mascots Newton and Fearn – have proved so popular”.
