              Sadly after a long illness with Parkinson's disease Jimmy died in the Glasgow Royal Infirmary in the early hours of Saturday morning on the 04th of November. Jimmy had been a member of the club for over 31 years having joined in 1986 when John MacFarlane was the then Club President.  Jimmy was a character and his stiff upright mode of walking got him the nickname 'Sgt.Major'.
           He had many friends in the club especially his Friday night mates who he regularly played dominoes with and by all accounts he was a canny player.  Robert Burns, Bob Clark, Brian Hughes, Robert Park, John MacDonald, Ian Skillen to name but a few had many a Friday night tussle with their old pal. 
            Unfortunately a couple of years ago his health deteriorated and he was taken into Rodger Park Care Home  A lovely man who will be fondly remembered by everyone at Cambuslang BC.   Our sincere condolences go to his family.
Funeral arrangements 
Saturday 11th Nov. 10:15 at South Lanarkshire Crematorium then to the Burnside Hotel

Sadly our longest serving member Jim Meikle died on the evening of 1st Feb. after a long illness.
Jim joined the club we reckon in 1964 which was 54 years a member!  He had many many friends in the club and was also well kent at various other bowling clubs.

He and his wife Past Lady President Cathie were ever present at our cabarets where they were joined by lifelong friends Past President Jim Low and his wife May Low.

Jim was a proud Cambuslang B.C. member and he will be buried in his club blazer, shirt and tie.  A lovely big man who will be fondly remembered by everyone at Cambuslang B.C.   Our sincere condolences go to his wife Cathie and the family.
