DENTON Park Social Bowling Club members were determined Harry Garratt’s 90th birthday would not go unnoticed, even though the Victoria Park green was shut because of lockdown.
Bowlers turned up at Harry’s home in Haughton Green with presents and sang happy birthday while adhering to social distancing as they stood in the road.
Chair John Pyne also gave Harry, the club’s second oldest bowler, honorary membership.
Club secretary Tony Moran described Harry as a “true gentleman of the game”.
Tony added Harry and wife Joan are “loyal members, strong competitors and good ambassadors for the bowling club”.
