Each year on August bank holiday Monday Sidmouth Bowls Club holds its Annual Charity Morning, writes Carol Smith. This year the attendance from Sidmouth residents and others was truly outstanding.
Our charity this year is for Brain Tumor Research. I haven't any figures to report yet (they are probably still counting!) but we hope it will be a record amount to give to such a deserving charity.
The raffle was outstanding with lots of great prizes donated by members. The bottle tombola had many bottles of wine and spirits and some people were lucky enough to win three or four bottles.
The cake stall sold lots of yummy homemade cakes and there were also, plants, jewellery, books, clothes and bric-a-brac stalls selling their wears. Rob was playing his guitar and singing to us.

The Over 50 Ladies' Blue team had a couple of games this week. The first being away to Ottery St. Mary. Unfortunately, they only banked 2 of the 6 available points with one winning rink and losing overall. Our winning rink was Jean Brimson, Ann Capon and skip Carol Smith. Then another disappointing game away to Seaton Red. Winning again on one rink and losing overall, so just 2 points. Our winning rink was Maggie Masson, Carol Smith and skip Jill Bishop
In the men's Over 60's D team they won on both rinks away to Phear Park, their total score being a great 49 - 16 .Their best rink was David Andrew, Denis Griffiths and skip Ray Gray
