The past week was certainly a busy one at Madeira.

In the national pairs there was success for Janine Orchard and Jean Rainton who won 20-15 at Honiton against R Hirons and S Hiscocks.

The Madeira Ladies played a friendly match against Axminster and managed two wins and one loss.

Josie Glaister, Lin Halpin and Shirley Smith won 22-12 and there was also a thrilling 11-10 victory for Janet Allen, Sharon Darton and Veda Bevan.

Fay Hughes, Val Allam and Carol Worth were unable to make it three wins fro three as they went down 24-18.

Captain Angela Denner hosted a friendly match against the Devon county ladies.

Norma Cureton, Jenny Smith, Deidre Norman and Annette Flockhart came a close second with an 18-12 loss although the county ladies did borrow our own May Dyson who had a very good game!

Angela Denner, Dee Williams, Ann Doidge and Thelma Wildon were hosts to the County president Jean Wards’ rink which romped home to a 45-5 win.

Jan Roberts, Christine Macaulay, Jean Healey and Shirley Smith upheld Madeira’s

honour with a 23-12 win over their county opponents. Everyone enjoyed the full tea after the game.

In the national pairs Christine Macaulay and Angela Denner won 24-16 at Mid Devon against Mary Snell and Jan Robinson.
