Bethany Hall

Koffee Time today (Thursday) brings April to an end. You are warmly welcomed to join us any Thursday you can manage through the summer months. Plans are afoot on the last Wednesday of August to have an afternoon bus run to Largs. It should be a good day as there is a regatta due that week which should make good viewing. Our Bible Teaching on Sunday at 11.50 a.m. will be given by Billy Holleran, no stranger to Bethany Hall. On Tuesday we have a prayer meeting for folk near and far. We especially are remembering the people of Nepal at this time of national emergency and those affected by the earthquake in neighbouring countries.

Bowling Club

New president Grant Williamson welcomes members and hopes everyone has an enjoyable and successful season. Thanks go to all those who work behind the scenes to ensure things run smoothly. The greens are in excellent condition thanks to Jimmy Rowan, Alan Shade and Derek Barr, while the gardens and surrounds are some of the best in the district thanks to Ian Stewart. John Burt and Jimmy, Ian, Derek and Dougie Harkness continue to use their expertise to keeping our function hall, bar and facilities in great condition. Fundraising is a big part of the club’s income and thanks again to Jim for running the successful 21-club and to the Janice Haston, Liz Rowan and Betty McQueen for their bi-annual prize bingo - both very important sources of income, as is the function hall which is very busy with concerts and shows ran by Kelly Dickinson. Also the many birthday and engagement parties and weddings that take place in the hall - all overseen by our excellent and hardworking bar staff, Kathryn, Kirsty and Charlene. Thanks go to the management committee who are tasked with running the club. There is a Juniors section which runs on Friday at 6.30 p.m. and club coach Kelly Dickinson will be only too happy to see any youngsters who may be interested in taking up the sport.
