Acknowledges his sterling club work
Past president Peter Phillips has been made an honorary president of Cambuslang Bowling Club.
Peter is only the 21st President in the club’s 143 year history to be given this honour.
He joined Cambuslang in 1998 and soon became a director. Since then, he’s enjoyed spells as treasurer, greenkeeper, house convenor and has performed many technical and manual tasks in the club. He was delighted in 2004 to be given the honour of being club president and fulfilled his duties along with his wife Ann in an exemplary manner. In 2004 he helped re-establish the club’s Burns Supper.
During his year as president, Peter christened the club’s ‘Daldowie Lounge’, he travelled to Dublin on a bowling tour and helped raise £2,890 for CHAS, the children’s hospice. In 2008 he was awarded a South Lanarkshire Council community service award.
The Citation read;“Peter Phillips has been a volunteer worker in the community for many years. He was the treasurer for many years in the Cambuslang Miners Welfare and held the position of secretary and President of Cambuslang Bowling Club. He has been a successful fundraiser and has raised money to help many disabled forums and groups in the local area.” In 2010 Peter became club president for a second time. It was a double celebration this year as Peter’s wife Ann was also lady president. In 2015 he took on the onerous task of looking after the bar and setting up a volunteer bar rota, and can be seen most Monday evenings working behind the bar.
