Tribute: The late Tam Lochhead

Among many others, local bowling circles have been saddened by the death of Tom (Tam), Lochhead (writes a contributer).

Tam was for many years a staunch, dedicated member of both Hope Paton Bowling Club and Montrose Town Hall Bowling Club.

As well as his bowling skills, Tam will be well remembered for his cheery sense of humour, having a witty reponse in any conversation.

At Montrose Town Hall Bowling Tam was often paired against the late Ally Mackie, and the care taken in play was intense because the loser had to buy the winner a nip at the Legion.

Hope Paton Bowling Green won’t be the same without Tam sitting in his wheelchair watching every bowl, and all sympathy goes out to his family at their, and everybody’s, sad loss.
