Ottery St Mary Bowling Club has a new bar to mark its silver jubilee season, writes Mike Smith.

The new bar was officially opened on Sunday, the first day of the outdoor season, when mayor Glyn Dobson dropped by to raise the shutters for the first time.

The bar was completed earlier this year after hundreds of hours of hard work by members John Pethick and Dave Brown. They did a magnificent job and still remain friends.

Thanks must also go to their long-suffering wives and families who didn’t see much of them for almost a year , but who supported them throughout.

The weather was kind and some 50 or so members enjoyed a fine afternoon’s bowling, ending the proceedings with a few drinks in the new bar.
