New bowling green, Handcross

This is a general view taken of the opening ceremony for the new bowling green at Handcross. Also, see picture #940.
On the extreme left, facing to his right, is Ralph Tulley. Standing on the green, in white shirt, is my grandfather, Jim Longhurst of Slaugham, who played a major part in the preparation of the green and the laying of the turf. Also standing on the green is Frank Weller.
Sitting, with a hat, is Col. J. R. Warren, then 8-years-old Michael Warren, then Mrs Eveline Warren.
I recall that my grandfather used to say that he was fearful of damage to the green when Mrs Warren walked on the turf with those long heels!
