Around 78 people attended the event. All of the money raised will go towards the annual running costs of the club.

There were homemade cakes, preserves, plants, books and jigsaws, homemade cards, jewellery, raffle and a tombola.

Jude Latta, of the Exmouth Madeira Bowls Club, said the event, which raised £680.03 in total, went really well.

However, she did reveal the number attending was down compared to last year’s spring fayre.

She said: “Sharon Darton, assistant secretary of the outdoor ladies’ committee, has worked tirelessly to put on these events. She was pleased and thankful for the help given by members to make this a successful fundraiser.

“We do two fayres every year; one in the autumn and another in the spring. We are always happy to have people to come in and see us.”
