The Bing Boys

Prestongrange Bowling Club, High Street
by Lynda Whyte

The Bing Boys mural is a tribute to sports in Prestonpans, but more so to bowls and football. The Bing Boys were famous amongst those that lived in Prestonpans for playing footie on the bing. Lynda Whyte has successfully combined the sporting images of bowling and football, with an image of the oldest living bowler and portraits of the 5 Bing Boys. A poem accompanies this mural written by Annette Gilmore from the Prestonpans Historical Society.
