In front of TV favourite place for the family

A THIRD of Scottish adults say their favourite way of spending time with the family is to watch TV or a film together.

And a survey found that 46 per cent of people play console games with relatives, 20 per cent gather round a board game, 7 per cent play online games and 5 per cent complete jigsaws as a family.

For a group day out, the top choice - with 20 per cent of the votes - was a day at the beach, followed by a trip to a theme park and shopping for 14 per cent, according to the poll carried out by the Galloway Cheddar Family Favourites.

Almost half of those quizzed, or 48 per cent, said Chinese was their favourite takeaway supper, with fish and chips third, with ten per cent of the vote.

Martin Rickenback, group marketing director, said: "Our research highlights that Scottish families like to spend their time together in a rather traditional way. A walk, time on the beach and then a family takeaway watching a movie having a laugh."
