Freedom of the Borough for Chambers brothers and Alan Campbell?

1 Mins read

In a Notice of Motion Submitted by Councillor McCandless, Alderman Hillis, Councillor Wilson and Councillor Holmes the following will be discussed at this weeks council meeting.

The motion reads “Our Olympic oarsmen Alan Campbell, Richard Chambers and Peter Chambers all former pupils of CAI and Bann Rowing Club members have honoured this Borough and particularly the town of Coleraine, and I feel it is only fitting that we honour them with the Freedom of the Borough.

Alan Campbell is the first sportsperson from NI to have competed at four Olympic Games, Richard Chambers has competed in three and Peter has competed in two.

Alan was G.B.’s first single scull rower to win an Olympic medal for 84 years when he lifted the bronzed in 2012.

Richard and Peter lifted the silver in 2012 as part of the lightweight men’s four. We can be justifiably proud of these young men, they are people of distinction and great ambassadors for the Borough. They narrowly missed out on qualifying for the 2016 Rio Olympics and I have great pleasure in nominating them for the Freedom of the Borough.”
