Chardstock Bowls Club held it’s annual Open Day on April 28 and welcomed a dozen new people from the village and surrounding area who were keen to find out what the club has to offer, writes Vaughan Fletcher.

Hopefully they will have enjoyed the afternoon and will be joining us soon.

The outdoor season is now well underway and the club, which had an average start last year, has had an excellent start winning four, drawing one and losing two of the friendly games.

In the Exeter and District Over-60s Triples League, the A team have started well winning both of their opening matches.

We are all looking forward to the rest of the season and hope that the future matches will be as enjoyable as those to date.
