Charmouth Bowls Club held their 2015 presentation event at St Andrews Community Hall, Lower Sea Lane.

Cups and trophies were presented for a range of competitions for both the summer lawn green bowls and also for the winter short mat sessions.

Following an excellent buffet supper the presentations were conducted by the club’s competitions secretary and vice-captain, David Cruickshank.

There was a resounding round of applause for the club’s youngest member 15-year-old Finn Gordon-Christopher who, in his first season on the green was able, against the stiff competition from much more mature and practiced players, to win the coveted men’s handicap singles cup.

The club has seen a resurgence of membership over the last season and looks forwards to a much stronger 2016 season.

Short Mat bowls continues through the winter and anyone is welcome to get along to the Community Hall, Lower Sea Lane, any Tuesday afternoon at 2pm.
