Bo’ness Bowling Club celebrated the launch of its 150th anniversary with the tournament at the club last Saturday.

A number of dignitaries from various bowling associations were invited along to mark the milestone event, including Archie Purvis, secretary of West Lothian Bowling Association, Peggy Hewitt, West Lothian Bowling Association ladies president, and Kathie Grant, president of East of Scotland Ladies Bowling Association.

A number of rinks were played between the members and invited guests and this was followed by a meal in the clubhouse after the day’s bowling had been completed.

Club president Morven Shearer thanked everyone who made the day so special and said that another event will be staged at the end of August between Kinneil and clubs from Edinburgh, Glasgow, Armadale and Grangemouth.
