Bowling Green 

The bowling green at Harpers Rec is the winter green for the Borough.  It is used from the end of September through to end March.  The green is generally not used in the summer to let the grass recover ready for the winter season. 

The green is locked and only authoriosed key holders have access.   The green is open to the public from 12:15 to 3:30pm every afternoon in good weather.  It will be closed in heavy  rain, frost or snow.
