Sidmouth Ladies entertained the Devon Ladies County Indoor President, Marilyn O'Callaghan from Isca, and her team of County Bowlers in a festive match on the rinks. 

We had an excellent morning with plenty of good and, some not quite so good, bowling, but the atmosphere was always fantastic fun.   

Overall, Sidmouth lost to the President’s team but only by four shots, with the final score 44-48.  We also lost on two of our three rinks, but had one very successful rink with a great win of 19 –6 for the team of Jan .J .Bates, Sue Clint, Mary Turner and skip Zena Johnson.  Well done to them. 

After the match, we were served a delightful lunch of sandwiches, lovely homemade cakes, mince pies and various nibbles. Our thanks go to Mary Meadows, Jill Mison and Paddy Chew for giving up their time. 

Happy New Year from Sidmouth Bowls Club.
