Clydebank Citizen of The Year


The Clydebank Asbestos Group are delighted on the honour bestowed on our chairperson, Bob Dickie, who received the award of Clydebank’s Citizen of the year.

Bob, in his usual manner, made out that it was not about him, but about those he worked with.

Humility has always been a great strength of Bob’s.  Always ready to take a back seat, always ready to give credit to others.

But there is more to Bob than his years of being a volunteer for Clydebank Asbestos Group.

He was also one of the leaders of the UCS work in, he was together with Jimmy Reid, Jimmy Airlie, Sammy Barr, Sammy Gilmour and others, instrumental in showing the world what could be done with unity of purpose.

The work in is now a legend in the history of Clyde Shipbuilding, and Bob was a major player.

There is no person more deserving of this honour.
