Found some photos that may be of interest.

First one is "Fallin Old Folks Treat". Kneeling on far left of the picture is Thomas Bunyan; I don't know who anyone else in the photo is. This photo is from about the 1950s-60s. The photo was taken for the Stirling Observer.

Second photo is Polmaise Bowling Club, from the 1960s I believe.

I was just messing around checking pictures of Polmaise colliery when i came across the picture "Old folks Treat" taken in 50s-60s for Stirling Observer and i am pretty sure the person kneeling front left is my Grandfather Charlie Easson. Derek Richardson
