Now that the festive season is over and we are at the start of a new year, perhaps it is time to reflect on the progress of Sidmouth lady bowlers, writes Jennifer Fricker.

The Atherley trophy is a national competition and recently Devon County won against Somerset and are now due to play Dorset. Congratulations to Jill Bishop for being selected for such a prestigious team.

In the Foxland’s League, a county competition, Sidmouth are currently leading Division Two.

However, they have played more matches than some clubs so there is no time to relax.

The Lane League campaign is not going so well with the team sitting fifth out of nine.
