This picture is from 1978 and these are just some of the many Blantyre kids who enjoyed a summer of fun at the Blantyre Community Centre at Glasgow Road.
It marked the start of 4 weeks of summer school holiday fun which got off to a great start, despite earlier fears that the events may not go ahead due to lack of supervision. The Playscheme events were dually run by The Elizabeth Scott Centre and the Glasgow Road Community Centre and they attracted youngsters in their droves! The idea was to stop children being bored in summer, but still give them something interesting to do in the company of many friends.
