The green is open!

On a cool, damp Sunday, club President Tony Oldland officially opened the Merrow Village bowls green for the 2018 season. Tony welcomed new members Mike, John and Sally to the club. Also given a special mention were Len, Andy and Bernard for their work on erecting the new equipment shed.

Twenty three members turned out ready to see how well the green was performing. Unfortunately, the recent wet weather had hampered the green’s preparation, meaning that the grass was rather long for bowling. Still, with the forecast for next week being for warm and sunny weather, we should be ready for our first home match on Sunday 22nd April, when we host Liphook.

Here are a few photos of the opening, with Tony delivering the first bowl of the season:
