The Bangalow Women’s Bowling Club celebrated their 70th birthday earlier this month with a formal lunch and themed outfits.

‘On the day, current members dressed, and bowled, in apparel reminiscent of earlier times. A formal luncheon was also held and a party atmosphere was created surrounding the day’s events,’ Margaret Dingle-Draper said.

‘Our club, formed in 1952 has seen many achievements, enduring friendships and changes over the years.

‘The inaugural minutes from 1952 were read and long-time members shared their stories of years gone by.

‘Our club looks to the future with the buoyancy of new members driving it on as we strive towards that next milestone,’ she said.
