Ooh la la! A boules of a time was had recently at the TIA boules competition at Hays Galleria.

The proceedings were overseen by a "French-man" dressed in beret, onions and striped shirt.

Winners of the competition were the team from Storm Telecommunications – Richard Masterson, Julian Brownlow-Davies and Rafael Aldon, pictured here with compere Nick Gough.

Their prize was a boules set each and a case of vintage wine.
