SRUC Ayr students visit Playsport Scotland
3rd Year Rural Business Management students from SRUC Ayr enjoyed a visit to Playsport Scotland in East Kilbride.
As part of the course, the students regularly undertake trips to various local businesses to get real-world experience of rural business management in action.
Playsport is a diversified business built on farm land just outside East Kilbride. There are 10 leisure businesses operating on the site and the students were learning about their co-operative ethos when it comes to marketing, recruitment and purchasing activities.
The students were shown round by centre manager John Stuart. John at one point used to instruct SRUC Outdoor Pursuits students in climbing and kayaking so he was delighted to meet up with a new generation of SRUC students.
The students also enjoyed hitting a few balls on the driving range.
