IN the last two weeks of the bowls season, Lyme Regis Bowling Club played five friendlies, winning two and losing the others.
In a wild and windy last week, the club managed to entertain two touring sides and complete full games.
Last Saturday was supposed to be the annual gents versus ladies end of season game, but the weather intervened and the members stayed in the clubhouse for a ‘Beetle Drive’ which was set to be held in the evening. Alan and Pam Weech kindly did the organising and general chaos followed but, a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon was had by members. Alan Nabarro, club captain, raised £140 for his Weldmar Hospice charity during the afternoon.
