It’s always much more fun playing in Folk Festival week, with a backdrop of music, the jangling bells of Morris men and women and brightly and colourfully dressed musicians and dancers strolling by!

We also had the beginnings of Big Bertha blowing a gale on the rinks, but thankfully no rain.

All these distractions resulted in one rink winning for Sidmouth.

However, the overall total score of 32-33 (if only we had secured just one more point) led to an overall loss for Sidmouth, securing only two of the available six points.

Meanwhile, it’s a case of ‘back on the road to success’, for the Sidmouth Ladies Over-50s Blue team.

Two rinks played away at Princes Garden on Monday of this week and both enjoyed resounding wins as the Blues landed a 58-23 victory.

Jane Painter skipper Pat Ashton-Pritchard and Zena Johnson to a 29-15 win whilst Jill Bishop skipped Jean Brimson and Chris Hamer to an emphatic 29-8 triumph.

This left the team banking the full six points.

Well done, one and all.
