Ottery St Mary president Gerry Beighton held the annual President’s Day at the club, writes Michael Smith.

The president, ably assisted by his wife Maggie, hosted the day and kindly donated a bottle of whisky as the winning prize for the ‘Spider’ competition.

That particular prize was won by Jill White and after the action everyone enjoyed a sumptuous meal.

Thanks must go to Maggie, Jan Richardson, Ann House and Gail Hawke for their hard work in preparing the meal - members were suitably impressed!

Gerry also skipped his team to an 18-13 success, with the support of Margaret Price and Dot Luff, who will remain in the Presidents ‘good book’ for the rest of the season.
