Pitlochry – Sunshine On Leith

On 29th June, 54 Association members went by coach to Pitlochry theatre to see the production of Sunshine On Leith. This was our first central event since COVID.

It was a great show, bringing back happy memories of the Proclaimers music, with excellent performances by all the cast and there was a well deserved standing ovation at the end.

The weather was not perfect but spirits were not dampened!

Bob Jackson’s delayed 90th birthday celebrations.

On 9th June ex International Division colleagues of committee member Bob plus BOSPA Ex Treasurer David Wilson’s widow gathered together at Buchanan Castle golf club Drymen to celebrate Bob’s 90th birthday, delayed by two years due to COVID.

They were Gordon Deas, Bill Truswell, Susanne Wilson, Janette Buchanan, George Crawford, Eddie McPhee and of course the birthday boy himself.

All, apart from Gordon and Janette, played a round of golf and Bob, at 92, still managed a very creditable 12 holes.

Inverclyde Lunch

On 8th June, Inverclyde area had their first annual lunch at the Inverkip hotel since the Covid interruption. It was a very pleasant lunch and the attendees took the opportunity to catch up.

The area convenor, Bill Hope, has decided to stand down after 21 years service to the Association and our grateful thanks go to Bill for all that he has done for BOSPA.

If anyone wishes to take over, let us know.


For those of us patiently waiting for a new date for this show, good news!

It has been rescheduled for Friday 25th November at 2.30pm and is now at the Theatre Royal. Fourth time lucky!

You will receive new tickets in due course.
