Clyde Region was sorry to hear that Bobby Wright who was an Honorary vice-President passed away last week.
Bobby has been involved in Scouting for nearly all of his life. He started out his adult service at the 34th Glasgow before starting a new Scout Group in the Gorbals and then taking on the challenging role of District Commissioner for Central South District in the former Greater Glasgow Area. From there he moved to take on the role of Depute Area Commissioner supporting the growth and development of Scouting before becoming Area Chairman. Always a keen supporter of Glasgow Gang Show, Bobby worked with the Gang Show team helping to manage their budgeting and finances during the mid-1990ís, following their move to The Mitchell Theatre.
There is a private cremation on Friday of this week and then a Service of Remembrance which will take place at Netherlee Parish Church, Ormonde Avenue, Netherlee, Glasgow, G44 3SL at 1.30pm to which those that wish to remember Bobby are warmly invited.
Bobby will be missed by many Scouting friends and our thoughts are with his wife Jean and his family.Author: Gary Bainbridge
