GOOD Friday saw the traditional opening of the bowling green at Uppermill Bowling Club.
On a fine and generally sunny day, 50 members joined in a mixed pairs competition for the Committee Trophy.
The first bowl was sent out by David Sykes, a long term member of the club, who celebrates his 90th birthday later in the season.
The eventual winners where Marjorie and George Bray with the runners up Pauline and David Richardson.
