INVERKIP Hub was a hive of activity during the holidays as families showed up in big numbers to have some fun.

Hard-working volunteers put on a number of events as a thank-you to residents for their continued support.

There was a carnival atmosphere at a family fun day, with face-painting, a bouncy castle and arts and crafts ensuring an action-packed time for everyone.

They also teamed up with the local community learning and development to run a healthy eating cooking demonstration.

Later in the week there was a cinema screening for local youngsters.

Centre manager Kevin Rodgers said: "We have had a big turn out.

"The Hub belongs to the community and they are showing their support for it.

"The board are volunteers and really supportive.

"They helped organise all of this."

Local mum Jennifer Coyle brought her daughter Summer, seven, and son Marc, six, to the fun day.

She said: "We have lived in Inverkip for eight years and the hub is a great facility which was badly needed.

"We are never out of it, with Summer's dancing and the library."

Visitor Rosa Currie, her son Leo Gatens, four, and nephew Brandon Canney were also enjoying a visit to the village focal point.

She said: "It is a brilliant place.

"We have had a great day here."
