The Commonwealth Games may be over but the theme continued at Ellon Baptist Church’s summer youth club.

During last week local youngsters took part in Fit for a King, which featured activities linked to the Games.

The holiday club is organised by local church volunteers and run by young people from the Step-out team, representing various Baptist churches throughout Scotland.

It was attended by pupils from S1-6 and held in the Old Academy.

Ellon Baptist Church minister the Rev William Butchart said the youth club had been extremely successful.

He added: “We had around 50 local youngsters attending.

“We were also running a youth club in the evening which had about 20 young people, although it was not quite as focused programme- wise.”

A prize-giving ceremony on Friday marked the climax of the week.
