EASTWOOD high sports centre is open for business.

The Newton Mearns facility threw open its doors last week, and dozens of children attended the first day athletics session.

The youngsters joined invited guests to declare the building - part of a combined £28.9 million project with the new Eastwood high school - officially open.

Facilities include two four-court sports halls, a fitness or dance studio, synthetic athletics track, swimming pool and games hall.

When the new high school opens in August, the sports centre will be used by pupils during school hours, and be open to the community on evenings and weekends.
