Harpenden Bowling Club have hoisted the colours to signify the start of their new outdoor season.

And after the traditional flag raising and bowling the first bowl ceremonies, the glorious weather provided a perfect backdrop to the ever popular gala match between teams led by the president and captain.

More than 60 enthusiastic players had a great afternoon’s bowling with president Rob Peppiatt’s team coming out on top.

The gala was played with much humour and good spirit by players of all abilities, some with just one or two years experience.

Harpenden are also running two ‘come and try’ sessions.
