Hughes to be recognised
Discussions are under way at Plimmerton Bowling Club on how best to recognise Charlie Hughes, who died on February 11.
The former club president, greenkeeper and life member died in Christchurch after a short battle with cancer.
He featured on the Kapi-Mana News front page on February 2, talking about what it had meant to be a part of the club where he was a member for 38 years. He won 18 club titles.
Club member Dudley Enoka, who delivered a speech at Hughes’ farewell on January 27, said Hughes promoted bowls and Plimmerton Bowling Club at every opportunity.
‘‘That showed up in so many ways,’’ Enoka said. ‘‘Charlie had an absolute commitment to help at all levels.
‘‘His energy levels were high, he was rolling the green until the last day he was here in Plimmerton. He was a very special member of the club who won’t be forgotten and who has left a legacy.’’
The club’s members will decide soon how to commemorate Hughes. It is understood he wanted some of his ashes spread in the club garden.
