Image shows officials at the opening of the new bowling green at the recreation ground in Barley Hill Road in 1935. It would appear to be a very wet day for the ceremony. Second from the left is Councillor Ned Linley, then in belted raincoat, Councillor Jim Kilburn. In the centre, in a long rain-cape is Clerk to the Council, Margery Goodall, then the Planning Officer, Mr. Cornelius. The names of the two men at the extreme left and right are unknown. Behind them the tennis court is visible. Photograph supplied by Harold Bramley.
