Linlithgow OAP group forced to close

An old folks group has been forced to closed due to lack of interest.

The members of Linlithgow and Linlithgow Bridge Pensioners held their last meeting on Tuesday, July 
26.

It had met on the fourth Tuesday of every month in Linlithgow Bowling Club at the West Port for a number of years.

However, this week secretary Sheila McGaw said: “It is with great regret 
that the committee have, after many discussions, agreed that the association should close due to lack of interest.”

It has been agreed by the committee to split the remaining club funds between local charities.

Mrs McGaw added: “We have all enjoyed the many years we have been involved as a committee, our monthly meetings and the many members we have helped.

“Also our Christmas dinners along with the local councillors and the many coach outings, members and friends have enjoyed over the years.

“We are left with some great memories.”
