OVER 100 East Ren primary pupils spent their summer exploring the depths of space

The youngsters were part of the Maxwell Mearns Castle church summer holiday club, Space Academy. Director Debbie McDougall said: “The church team worked really hard to develop a programme of drama, games, crafts, comedy and music and were rewarded by a hugely fantastic response from the children.”

The club was visited by members of the Faith Evangelical Presbyterian church in Florida, who introduced the kids to American games — the church also held a range of Saltires, Stars and Stripes events to welcome their guests.
