A popular kids’ free play session, Little Gym Buddies, ran throughout the day.

Hundreds of children took part in the gymnastic-based class, which runs every Thursday at 10.30am.

Other activities for children included a bouncy castle, face painting, and the chance to meet mascot ‘Garioch’.

Local resident Emma Emslie said: “It was great to be able to see the breadth of what the sports centre has to offer and I was impressed by how much there was to keep the kids entertained.”
