Peter Nelson, a much-loved former member of Phear Park Bowls Club passed away six years ago, but he is still fondly remembered by lots of folk in and out of the club, writes David Evans.
Peter served the club over many decades and held the roles of club captain and president, something he did with real distinction.
He was also an important member of the club’s highly successful Over-60s team and, away from bowls he also played rugby, water polo and snooker.
As captain, one of his most endearing features was his ability to deliver jokes in such a way that everyone who heard them ended in stitches of laughter!
Peter’s widow, Liz, has put up a trophy in his name that is contested each year by club members.
The 2018 Peter Nelson Memorial trophy was won by Bob Smith, Brian Halsey, Fay Downend and David Horne.
