On Wednesday Sidmouth ladies held a fun competition, writes Maria Clapp.

A County Prize was due to be held on this day. This was cancelled due to a special celebration of one of our lady members.

The lady in question is Paddy Hutchings! The celebration was in honour of Paddy being a member of Sidmouth Golf club for 50 years! Paddy was unaware that the day was being held in her honour.

Sheila, the ladies captain made her aware as she completed her round of golf. Several of our past lady members were invited for tea and a special cake was made by The Upper Crust Bakery. Paddy was presented with a bouquet of flowers and several cards. How brilliant is this!

Sheila Faulkner, Liz Chance and Paddy Hutchings were the winners with 60.2 points.

Paddy said what a huge surprise it was and how did we all manage to keep it a secret! She thoroughly enjoyed the day and meeting the numerous past members for tea.
