It was a celebration of note at Hibberdene Bowling Club’s 50-year anniversary cocktail party on Friday.
A jovial atmosphere filled the air as members of ‘the friendliest club on the South Coast’ celebrated and reflected on the club’s legacy.
A collection of 150 photos chronicling the club’s evolution – from its original seashore origins to its current Eton Road location – added to the evening’s festivities, which included founding and oldest living club member, 90-year-old Mike Hoyer, cutting the cake.
“The evening went down very nicely and everybody thoroughly enjoyed the occasion,” club president Eddie Milne told eHowzit.
“It was nice to have such a good turnout of about 40 to 50 people to celebrate the club’s history.
“Everyone was really interested in the photos on the big screen; they quite enjoyed that and had a good time overall.
“We look forward to making more memories in the years to come.”
