Guest for the evening was ex England/Somerset fast bowler Richard Johnson, now a distinguished coach, who presented the awards and Rotary president Mike Garrett was on hand to present the Rotary Junior Member of the Year Award to Christopher Brown.

The number of junior members attending Cloakham means more assistants and coaches are needed and several have come forward. The 'Chance to Shine' initiative, which will continue for another three years, has also added to the workload for the coaches. Through the Devon Community Fund the club can assist four members to attend a UKCC Level 1 course and one to attend a UKCC Level 2.
