Robert Weir was our club Champion in 1899 (see photo) and club President in 1921
He left the club sometime thereafter and joined Kirkhill B.C.

This programme, a couple of old photographs and Robert's 'silver jack' were

Extract from email Feb.2008
I have come across a photo of my Gran Jenny Burt at what looks like a bowling club event. I just needed to know if it is your bowling club and if you have any info on how long she was a member of your club etc.
I just wanted to put it in her hobbies in the book i am writing (this is just a family book nothing else). I have attached the photos and if you would like to use them on your website, please do.

Can date this picture as 1955 as the gentleman front row third from the right wearing the Cambuslang Bowling Club's President's badge is President R.Liddell ( He is front row no.1 in the photo below)
