Harry Faulds joined Cambuslang Bowling Club in 1989. A keen bowler and member he soon became a Director and in season 1993-94 was elected club President.

Four years later 1997-98 Harry became club President again serving a second term.

As an active Past President and member Harry is ever present at club tournaments and social events and is never happier than when in his favourite position ........ aye, holding a mic !


I captured this photo of him at the Ne'erday party in 2007-08 and its
him to a tee!






Harry joined Strathclyde's finest as a cadet in 1979 and has served loyally all these years in various departments. He retired from the force in 2010


He was nominated for a Glasgow Community Champion Awards.
The award is given to outstanding young people, dedicated neighbours,
life-changing organisations and public service workers who go
well above and beyond the call of duty.

Harry was one of the driving forces who helped setup the Operation Reclaim Project, which offers sporting activities to combat anti-social behaviour and gang fighting and is used by 3000 youngsters.
The 1.38million project now operates in seven sites and is used by 3000 youngsters in north Glasgow, and around 38% of the people, aged 6-19, are from black and ethnic minority backgrounds.

extract from evening times newspaper article

ASYLUM liaison officer Harry Faulds
takes his beat very seriously. So much so, that in 2004 he took to knocking on doors around Red Road in Springburn to lay the foundations of youth diversionary project Operation Reclaim.
Five years on and the activity programme has grown legs to include a football league for 2800 young people and a cheerleading programme with over 100 members. Around 38% of young people, ranging in age from 6-19, are from black and ethnic minority backgrounds.
The idea aimed to tackle territorialism, anti-social behaviour and a recreational racism' that saw nine asylum seekers attacked in one night on Faulds' patch.

More than 200 young people turned up on that first night for the project which has since expanded into an 1.38million operation across seven sites in Sighthill, Royston, Blackhill, Quarrywood, Springburn and Milton. Two uniformed officers now supervise sporting activities such as football, basketball, cricket, golf and cheerleading three nights a week in each of the playing fields. The activities are taught by qualified coaches from local sports company Sidekix.

And the effects have been felt in the wider community with violent crime, graffiti and gang-fighting dropping by up to 81% in some areas. The Strathclyde Police constable was last November 2008 nominated for the Jane's Police Review Gala Diversity in Action national award with colleagues Constable Helen Cobban and Constable Anthony Gallagher.


The Barmulloch-born 47-year-old, who leaves a rich legacy behind when he retires after 30 years' service next September 2010, said: "We're now supplying them with something to do and the kids have backed that up by coming along and staying away from gang fighting.
The feedback from the local community is that they feel it's safer and they can go and use the areas and that the areas are improving."
"I'm proud of what we've achieved and that the crime figures have dropped. You would think there must be a level where it will stop and it will start to go back up, but it's not. It's continuing to drop."The kids see the cops and they build up a better relationship and they see that they are actually approachable."         

.........and Cambuslang Bowling Club is proud of our Past President.  

PC Harry Faulds was a winner in 2009 for helping bring together people from all racial backgrounds
