A HALLOWEEN holiday hub was just a walk away from home for families in Greenock's east end.

King's Oak Primary pulled out all the stops to take the stress out of the October break.

The school's two-day holiday hub, organised by family learning worker Dehra Macdonald and funded by the Inverclyde Attainment Challenge, delivered free activities for all the family.

More than 100 children and their parents joined in the fun, making spooky arts and crafts indoors.

Outside the families were busy exploring and there was also an opportunity to take part in sports.

Family learning support worker Dehra said: "Our hubs are becoming more and more popular.

"They take the expense out of the holidays.

"Parents can leave their house and then walk to King's Oak.

"It is so good to have something that is local to them.

"We get amazing feedback, they all love it.

"It is also a chance for parents to meet other parents and the kids get to play with their friends in a safe place."

Parents and children also sat down to enjoy lunch together as well.

Dehra added: "It is important, because all the younger kids get free meals at school and this can be a problem in the holidays for parents."
