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.

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.
