Last Monday the Lyme Regis seniors held their monthly stableford competition, writes Richard Jackman.

In fine form, finishing top in division 1 was John Coley with an excellent 37 points.

Count back was called into play to separate Alastair Purcell and David Binns after both finished with 36 points, Purcell taking second place.

Division 2 saw Colin Conn’s 37 points take the honours from Roger Clarke (35) and Jim Pettifer on 34.

On Friday the seniors held their Annual Dinner and a full house enjoyed an excellent evening where Tony Beard, ‘The Wag from Widecombe’ from BBC Radio Devon entertained all with some witty anecdotes.

The ladies and juniors scheduled events fell victim to the fog.

This Saturday (April 20) club member Les Bounds has sponsored a charity evening for Hospiscare and has been fortunate enough to entice local group Chain Reaction out of retirement.

The function will also embrace a disco and charity auction hosted by Graham Barton (of Homes Under the Hammer fame). It’s free admission to the evening, but donatosn will be gratefully received for the most worthy of causes - Hospiscare.

April 24 will see the annual charity golf day at Lyme Regis in support of Candles on the Cobb, which this year has the British Heart Foundation as its national charity.

The event is in teams of three with an individual stableford and team prize. The presentation evening at the Nags Head in Lyme Regis has a ticket price of £7.50 which includes food.
