Axminster and Lyme Rotarians go clubbing
Golfers get in the swing to help support the air ambulances
AXMINSTER and Lyme Regis Rotary Clubs are on course to raise around �4,500 from their annual golf tournament.
The charity event attracted 36 teams of four who were treated to a bacon butty and coffee on arrival.
The stableford format meant the best two scores counted and the winning total of 94 points reflected the excellent weather.
Axminster Power Tools, one of the event sponsors, took the trophy. Lead by Bernie Styles, the team consisted of Alan Jones, Michael Trimble and Barrie Castle.
The profit raised will be split equally between the two Rotary clubs. who will each donate 60 per cent to their respective air ambulances and the balance to their charity funds.
Organisers thanked the multitude of sponsors, including chef Mark, whose Oyster and Fish Restaurant were major contributors and entered a team.

Rotarian Jim Moseley added: “ A day like this can only happen with the co-operation of Lyme Regis Golf Club and outstanding contributions from the professional Duncan Driver, secretary Sue Davidge, the club house Steward David Astill and John Leeming and staff in the kitchen.
“David Everett and his ground staff also prepared an immaculate course that was enjoyed by all who took part even if their golf did not always do it justice.”
