The first Sunday of July brought a coach of day-trippers to Sidmouth for an afternoon of bowls, writes Susie Bonnell.

The visitors, Prattens Bowling Club, from Midsomer Norton, fielded six rinks.

They arrived mid-morning, enjoyed Sidmouth’s warm hospitality in the shops, pubs and cafes, to spend a wonderful afternoon bowling in super sunshine and gentle breezes. Tea was taken at half-time (no cream tea this time as they had booked in to a well known Sidmouth Inn on the A3052 for a carvery on the way home!) - and the club bar was very well supported!

Once again, it was a good day’s bowling for everyone, with Sidmouth winning on five of the six rinks.

The top scoring rink for Sidmouth was played by skip, Susie Bonnell and her team, Phil Meadows, Derek Mountord and Janet Thomson.
