Winter 2019 Newsletter

Bothwell Bowling Club December 2019 Newsletter

Dear Members

Newsletter from President Marion To All Members

May I wish all members and their families a Happy Christmas and a peaceful New Year.

I should like take this opportunity of reminding Members of some of the events which have taken place and are planned for the near future.

First of all, I should like to congratulate the Coaching Team who have completed Bowling Workshops and modules at St Bride’s school, Bothwell. This was included in the school curriculum and the pupils sat a test and received certificates. This was an excellent programme carried out in a professional manner which was very much enjoyed by the pupils. It is planned to hold similar sessions at Bothwell Primary School in the next school session.

I should also like to congratulate Pauline McKnight and all her helpers who raised the magnificent sum of £2020 for St Andrews Hospice at the Sparkle Event held recently in the Club.

Upcoming Events:

Ladies Christmas Dinner took place on Wednesday and Members and friends had a most enjoyable evening.

Christmas Dance:

The Senior Gents are having their Christmas party on Friday 27th December starting with indoor bowling at Blantyre in the morning then back to the clubhouse for lunch. Andy Barr has left one of his quizzes to start the afternoon followed by the usual format of games – cards, dominoes, pool and darts

Indoor Bowling Outing

An Indoor Bowling Event is planned for Sunday 9th February. There will be a game at Blantyre commencing at 2pm, followed by a meal at the Club. There is a notice on the Notice Board. Please add your name


In the meantime, the Bar is open from 8pm on Friday and Saturday evenings.

With Best wishes to all Members for the Festive Season and a successful and peaceful New Year.

Marion A Gillan



May I wish all Finalists the best of luck in their games.
