NEVILLE ‘Peter’ Green did not take up the game of bowls until he was well into his 60s.
A multi-talented sportsman, Peter was made a life member of the Gloucester Tennis Club after long service to that organisation.
Now 83, Peter has served the Gloucester Bowling Club on its board of directors and as a volunteer worker for the past 20 years.
The first to raise a hand when help was requested, Peter is always loaning farm equipment and machinery to help improve the greens.
He helps out by repairing the seating, sun shades and ancillary equipment whenever the need arises.
Many times Peter has put his hand in his own pocket to pay for the repairs without ever accepting recompense.
He has also acted as the club’s flag marshal for many years.
Added to this is his accomplished bowling, his desire to win and his leading of a Pennant team for many years. Peter is the ideal of a club man.
In its 85 years of existence Gloucester Bowling Club has seen fit to offer life membership to only 16 members before Peter.
One such man was Peter’s father Don. It seems serving the club is a family tradition.
The club and its members congratulate Peter on his elevation to life membership and hope to see him around the traps for years to come.
