Out of the Blue

Picking up on yesterday's topic with these 2010 views, supplied by David and Margaret Gartside, of the road on Harris. Suddenly, as if from nowhere, appears the tennis court. Derek Fogg provided another image  with an 'out of the blue' appeal. The facility came to be in built when some children rigged up an improvised net across the little-used road and devised their own version of the game. Someone, perhaps waggishly, entered them for a junior competition and the tennis authorities were intrigued by their address. One thing led to another and, eventually, funds were found to create a court.
