Thursday, September 7, saw local bowlers from Phear Park in Exeter visit Sidmouth Bowling Club for a friendly game of four mixed teams of triples, writes Susie Bonnell.

The weather stayed dry until the very last end, which, given recent weather fronts, was a bonus!

It was a very fair and balanced game, with both sides winning two rinks each, but Sidmouth won the day overall with an aggregate score of 76/64.

On Saturday, Sidmouth welcomed South Dorset, who sent three mixed rinks. It was a day typical of our summer, rolling threatening clouds with some sunshine in between. The teams played eight ends before a deluge leading to an early tea.

We squeezed in another four ends before the rain returned and after waiting with fingers crossed we had to finally abandon the game.

This was the fantastic sum raised in the club’s Charity Bonanza. It’s so good to know the money will go to a wonderful local charity and be put to such good use.
