Following a frenzied Bank Holiday Charity Coffee morning on, Sidmouth bowlers were delighted to see the sun still shining later in the day for their Drive, writes Susie Bonnell.

This year it was somewhat different from the usual Drive - with a type of ‘Crown Green’ style bowling.

If anyone was casually strolling past the club and its fine rinks, they may have been surprised to see bowlers littered all over the green, bowling this way and that, unlike the usually decorous up and down!

You could say - it was the bowls equivalent of crazy golf!

It was a really great afternoon with much shouting and laughter - we certainly had to stay alert and watch out for other players’ woods flying by our ankles.
