The first Sunday of June saw Chardstock bowlers host a meeting with the Nomads, a group of bowlers from all over the south of England, who play matches to raise money for charity, writes Vaughan Fletcher.

Fortunately the rain in the area stayed away and a lovely afternoon was had by all.

The match was won, somewhat empathically, by the home side with the final score being 121-67. The top scoring home rink was the one of Jeanette Porter, D Hislop, M Copp and John Porter, who won 39-8.

In the Exeter and District Men's Over-60s Triples League, Chardstock A continued their winning ways with a 39-28 success against Feniton Eagles with the top scoring rink the one of K Warren, D Ellis and N Denslow, 24-14.

However, the B team went down to a 52-23 defeat away at Belmont B.
