Newly-elected Mansfield Bowling Club president Mrs Judith Ford (33) delivers the first wood of the new season watched by Nottinghamshire County Bowls president Roger Payne and district representative Dave Brownley.

Judith, the youngest president in the club’s history and only the third female to hold the post in 300 years, said she felt, ‘enormously privileged to be part of the Opening of the Green ceremony’.

The club, the oldest secular organisation in Mansfield, has nearly 80 members .

For the first time this year Queen Elizabeth’s Academy GCSE sports students are making full use of the club’s facilities.
