Farmers' market a great success
Wednesday, 28 March 2007
LINLITHGOW farmers market has proved to be a resounding success.

A beautiful sunny day meant the second farmers' market was enjoyed by many shoppers on Saturday.

The increased number of stalls were located deeper into the Vennel area this time and the added space allowed the people to walk through the market much easier than before.

The stall holders seemed to be doing a good steady trade when our Linlithgow NEWS photographer dropped by to see what was happening.

Livingston RFC Retain Rose Bowl
Wednesday, 03 January 2007

Linlithgow 0 - 51 Livingston  

Livingston and Linlithgow have had a long standing New Year fixture going back 30 years or so. Originally they played for an egg cup trophy. This fixture was always arranged for the 2nd January with the venue alternating between Almond Park and Mains Park.

Eventually a proper trophy, rose bowl was instituted by Mike Williams (LIN) and Charlie Lovell (LIV) respective presidents. Alas, both have now departed. 

Livingston’s higher fitness level showed going in to the second half, as Livingston racked up nine tries and three conversions in the New Year derby match. It was a fun game to play in and was played in the right spirit to kick off the New Year.  It was the 15th year running that Livingston have regained the Rose Bowl.
