The regular occurrence of ‘Sunset Bowls’ has proved to be a most popular happening this year, writes Carol Smith.

This is a club members’ event, which this year has been graced with some gorgeous summer evening weather.

The event is run by Liz and Steve Boyle, and, at the end of a couple of hours’ bowling, the players retreat to the clubhouse for a drink and mostly a bit of supper.

This week’s supper for 20 players was a nice jacket potato, so our thanks go to the Boyles for organising these evening get-togethers.

The men’s Over-60s A team were in league action away at Dawlish Marina, where they unfortunately lost on both rinks.

That all meant no points on this occasion, but, with two games remaining there is still a chance of promotion for the team.

Just the one friendly was played in the past week and it was a home meeting with Bradninch that saw Sidmouth win on three of the four rinks which helped towards an overall match victory of 79-64.
