Lyme Regis bowlers enjoyed a much improved week in their respective league matches, writes Paul Moffitt.

The ladies scooped all 10 points away to West Moors whilst the men, in division one, took seven points off Portland Victoria, thanks to a magnificent 35-9 win from Ken Hickmans rink.

The championship side were whitewashed again away to Greenhill who, with their recent additions from Wellworthy and Dorchester, look very much like a fully fledged Dorset team.

There was better luck for the men when they played Dorchester in the two-rinker, winning well enough on Barry Rattenbury's rink to take the match.

The friendlies are also looking far more encouraging, winning only one of the three that were played, but, on the plus side, the losses only being by small margins.

With the fine dry spell of weather, the green continues to play really well for this early in the season.

The club will be running social evenings every Wednesday from 6pm. These evenings will give new members the opportunity to hone their skills with the aid of club members and, will also offer the chance for anyone else who might be interested in bowls to come down and 'have a go!'
