St Andrews Night Celebration 26th November 2021

Having been cancelled due to the pandemic in 2020 the 2021 St Andrew's night went ahead in the Vale of Leven Bowling Club on Friday 26 November with President Walter Sneddon in the chair. Understandably the number attending was a little down on previous years but, given the circumstances it was a very healthy attendance.

We had an enjoyable evening in the company of good friends and, given the restrictions resulting from the pandemic it was really nice to be able to have this get together. Thanks to all who entertained us and to those who organised the event and helped make it a success. Thanks also to Tommy Gilmour for the photographs.
