The past week was an up and down one for the Chardstock bowlers, writes Vaughan Fletcher.

There was more success for the Over-60s League B team, but defeat for the A team, who suffered a reversal at the hands of Axminster Bowls Club.

Good news also from our first match in the East of Exe League, against Tiverton Park which was a close encounter that we won 63-54. However a friendly against Taunton Vivary was lost 86-64.
