The Ladies kept the flag flying for Axminster Indoor Bowling Club with an excellent win over Padbrook Park (90-71) in the County Foxlands League. The home rink of Sheila Cox, Alison Glyde, Ann Clayton, and Nola Stephens (25-10) and the away rink of Brenda Edwards, Chris Hobbs, Judith Moffitt, and Jan Parsons (32-11) played really well!

The men had a disastrous fortnight with their County games, losing against Isca in the Over-60s League (62-81) with only the home rink of Bob Sherborne, Alan Preece, Peter Eagles, and Don Meyland managing a win (20-17), losing against Honiton in the Interclub League, and losing against Madeira in the Charles Parrot KOCompetition!

In the mixed friendlies, Ax lost at home to Donyatt (48-70) with no winning rinks but came back strongly to beat Yeovil at home (59-44).

with wins for Lilian Lovatt, Ann Clayton, Jean Kesterton, and Margaret Crompton (26-14) and Phil White, Chris Todd, David Harris, and Alison Glyde (17-10). Ax lost a really enjoyable home game with Dunkeswell by just three shots (57-60) having beaten them earlier in the season by just four shots! The winning rink was Andy Spillar, Ann Clayton, David Harris, and Brian Clark (25-17).

May I wish all members and friends at Cloakham a Very Happy Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year.

DAVID HARRIS. 18.12.11.
