MENSTRIE HAS LOST A GENTLEMAN!

The Committee and Members of Menstrie Bowling Club would like to offer their Condolences to the family and friends of Stan Paterson, his death was sudden and a complete shock to everyone who knew him.

Stan was a former Chairman of Menstrie Community Council and continued as a hard working member after stepping down.

He was involved in many projects, the Community Garden, the Christmas lights, food parcel deliveries to name but a few. Stan always had a smile and a chat for anyone he passed, he made Menstrie a better place to live and was a true Gentleman!

RIP Stan

UPDATE – 2021

WE HOPE THAT EVERYONE IS WELL AND GETTING ON WITH DAILY LIFE WITH AS MUCH EASE AS COVID19 ALLOWS!

TAKEAWAY UPDATE info

I hope you all enjoyed the football match last night, good to have something to celebrate for those of us who have followed and supported Scotland for many years!!!

Thanks again for those of you who popped in last night to purchase a beer or two to take home, especially those who chose Carling as their drink of choice!!!

***There is still some Carling left at £1 a pint***

We do have plastic pint tumblers with lids for those who prefer them to the 4pt plastic containers !

Ashley will be opening for your takeaway;

Saturday 14th November 5pm – 6pm & Sunday 15th November. 12noon – 1pm

Stay Safe and Have a great weekend!

Thanks!

Sorry this is a bit late but Thanks to all those of you who came along tonight to take advantage of the 2litre Takeaway.

Ashley will open again this Sunday, 8th November 1 – 2pm – Please bring your Containers back with you for £1 off your refil.

Thanks again and see you Sunday.

UPDATE

BOWLING CLUB – UPDATE!

It looks highly unlikely that we will be open again this year and as a result we have Beer/Lager that will go out of date before then. We’ve given this some thought and in an attempt to try and empty the cellar we have purchased a number of 4 Pint Plastic containers!

Ashley will be in the Bowling Club on Thursday 5th November from 5pm to 6pm to fill the plastic containers and we will be charging £10 per 4pint container.

We will try this again over the weekend if there is interest so feedback/comments are most welcome!
