21.06.17 Bowling Green Opening Ceremony
Thank you to all those who attended the Upton Bowling Green Opening Ceremony last night.
The Parish Council was delighted to welcome the Lord Mayor of Chester to perform the cutting of the ribbon.
Several important projects have been identified for this year and with funds set aside from savings the bowling green project was given the go ahead.
As well as a very smart and generous bowling pavilion – with kettle! – the entire perimeter path was repaired and re-surfaced, new back boards were installed and the ditch re-established and sanded.
The unstable garden border wall was demolished and partly re-built to create a wonderful seating area.
Our excellent groundsman spent much time bringing the green up to a much better standard.
Please do come along and try bowling, bowls are available to borrow from the main Pavilion.
We would particularly encourage some of our younger residents to have a go and we have some children's bowls available too.
