THE presentation for the short mat Milford and Dormor League took place at Chard Bowling Club on Saturday, April 13.

The league had played during the winter months at Chard, with clubs from as far away as Seaton participating.

During the afternoon there was a short match, followed by tea, a raffle, and the presentation.

The afternoon was attended by teams from Chard, Creech St Michael, Seaton, and Mr Colin Burdett together with his colleague Laura from Milford and Dormor, who sponsor the event.

The winning team was The Hurricanes, second The Rockbillies (both from Chard Bowling Club), and in third place The Pirates from Seaton.

Chairperson Linda Thomas commented that it was a very pleasant afternoon, and gave thanks to the representatives from Milford and Dormor for attending along with Mrs Rosemary Barnard for all of her work in organising the Short Mat Bowling at Chard and the catering team.

Short Mat Bowling continues throughout the year at the club, if you are interested in trying it out contact them at
