Mem­bers dig deep

Ac­cess im­proved at Kirkhill

Rutherglen Reformer - - News - Kenny Smith

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.
