Rutherglen Reformer - - Intimations -

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.
