CARLUKE Bowling Club has come a long way since four of its inaugural members were presented with a pie measuring 2ft by 1ft way back on October 22, 1864.

The rink shared this savoury treat with their conquerors for taking part in an away tie they lost at Lanark Bowling Club 150 years ago. And Carluke BC’s 1864 formation was the landmark celebrated by 64 members who attended a special 150th anniversary celebration at Carluke Lifestyles Centre on Thursday night.

“We are extremely proud to reach the 150 years landmark,” said club historian Allan Mathers.
