Bowling returned to Potters Bar as the town's bowls club dusted off their kit and ventured onto the green for the first time in 2021.

The Walk-based club’s opening day took place on Saturday under blue skies and warm spring sunshine but there were differences to normal.

Because of COVID-19 restrictions, no more than 24 players are allowed on the green at any one time and to allow as many members to play as possible to play, three sessions were organised, spread throughout the day.

Players booked their chosen time slot and were then placed into teams with the club captains, this year Richard Winn and Jean Scott, selecting who goes where as usual.

A spokeswoman for the club said: "The green and maintenance teams have worked very hard throughout the winter months installing new fencing around the perimeter, a mammoth task but a job well done.

"Despite the cold weather and excessive rain in the early part of the year the green was maintained on a regular basis with aeration and treatment.

"It looked perfect on opening day and played really well."
