A fun time was had by all at the 'Activity for Health' Christmas Party at Ayr Town Hall.
The annual festive party for participants from a range of health and fitness activity classes saw a big turnout and pupils from Alloway Primary School Choir got things underway with a host of Christmas songs.
With the party up and running and everyone smiling, Vintage Blend, a retired group of voluntary musicians then took to the stage and provided a superb afternoon of entertainment, with songs and storytelling.
Participants came from Invigor8 classes, which are held in Ayr, Prestwick, Troon, Maybole and Girvan and offer advice and guidance on 'fall prevention' for people over the age of 60.
They were joined by members of the over-60's Club Diamonds exercise classes - a fun keep fit class for the over 60's where members can meet friends and keep active.
Also enjoying the festive party were members of South Ayrshire Council's Activity for Health programme, which includes the 'Weigh to Go' project.
Activity for Health was established in partnership by the Council and NHS Ayrshire and Arran to help people become more active through the benefits of an active lifestyle.
It is aimed at people who are inactive, overweight, smoke, suffer from high cholesterol or hypertension – or maybe have a range of other conditions where a more active lifestyle would be of benefit.
