The summer bowls season is now drawing to a close, writes Linda Stone.

Seaton played its last two friendly matches of the campaign last week starting with a visit to Crewkerne which was lost 92-79.

The defeat came despite a splendid 27-14 success for the rink of Norman Stone, Ian Manchester, Terry Hurley-Smith and Joan Miles.

That was followed by a trip to Lyme Regis where a 143-112 victory was claimed.

Here the top Seaton rink was the one of Angie Mayhew, Doug Hislop, Peter Greenwood and George Mabon.

Last Saturday the club celebrated what has been a most successful season with a fun game of target bowls.

Each team had to bowl to a target on the rink, scoring points according to how close the bowls ended up to the ‘gold’ centre target.

Dressed in bright colours, and some in fancy dress, a hilarious time was had by all!

At the end of the action the club captain Pat Whitworth, ably assisted by many of the members, laid on a superb meal, much enjoyed by all. The winning rink of the target game was Peter Grigg, Jasper Chun (a junior member who won his first ever trophy, a box of sweets!), Graham Thomas and skip Linda Stone, with a magnificent score of 50 points.

Now we look forward to the winter season of short mat bowls. On Sunday members stripped out the partitions, in the club house, that form the changing rooms for the summer and laid down the mats ready for the winter.

Anyone who is interested in joining the club for the winter please feel free to phone the club secretary, Linda Stone on 01297 624237. It’s a friendly group of people at then club and newcomers are always made very welcome.
