Family Fun Day
Families attended a fun day to mark the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow.
Children and adults flocked to the historic Byker estate on Wednesday for a host of family fun to mark the day of the opening ceremony.
The event, run for residents of the historic estate by Byker Community Trust (BCT), featured everything from laser quest to exotic animals, alongside fun games and races inspired by the ‘friendly games’ getting underway today in Glasgow.
Over a thousand local residents turned out to enjoy four hours of fun, including races, competitions and dance, as well as music, face painting and sports organised by the Hat-Trick project, which helps young people to learn life skills and confidence through football.
