IT WAS a full house at Dunfermline's Carlton Bingo on Sunday as members and staff celebrated its recent relaunch.

After a £2 million investment, members, staff and guests enjoyed an afternoon of entertainment which included free draws worth £3,000.

The major revamp is designed to bring the attraction into the 21st century and includes the introduction of electronic bingo through the use of tablets and the creation of a chat room space with dedicated bar.

A space for live music has also been added where local bands will feature and open mic nights, karaoke and quizzes can also take place.

Manager Findlay Meechan told the Press: "We had 340 people come in and it was a pretty good afternoon for everybody. We had a free meal for them, free draws and £3,000 worth of prizes and cabaret with the Jersey Tones; it was a great day.

"It has been a major refurbishment with £2m spent on upgrading it and bringing it into the 21st century. It first opened in 2005 but the big club was not suitable so we had a rejig of the club, giving it more of an atmosphere.

"The atmosphere was terrific on Sunday. The feedback has been 98 per cent positive so far about how the club is looking and how the facilities have improved."

The ribbon to mark the new facilities was cut by long-serving staff member Lorraine Drylie, the club's deputy manager, and eldest club member, 94-year-old Peggy Watson.
