Members dig deep
Access improved at Kirkhill
Kirkhill Bowling Club members have been bowling their friends over with their dedication to the club.
Last year, the club on Stewarton Drive in Cambuslang received a grant of £9500, to be used to improve disabled access to their club.
Over the last month, volunteer members have been helping to improve their car park.
Work on the club’s car park was originally scheduled to last two days but members finished it ahead of schedule last week so, on Tuesday morning, Ronnie Wilson, Charlie Lamont and Roy Linder moved a pallet full of breeze blocks into position to be used as an improved greenside shelter.
The digging involved club volunteers moving four tonnes of loose pebbles and sand to finish off the work to the rear car park.
Volunteers included stalwarts like Rennie Dobinson, John Burns – whose spadework was surgical in its precision – and Ronnie Wilson, who supervised and got stuck in to everything.
Also, Bill Bell, Alastair Firth, Hugh McNulty, David Frondigoun, John O’Brien and new member John Corborough all showed they could use a wheel barrow and rake to great effect.
