A VISIT from Heavitree Ladies in the over 50's league gave Budleigh 4 points from the match, writes Pat Pearson.Celia Mangeng skipped Margaret Ratcliffe and Maggie Dance to a 23-10 win with the home team winning 11 of the 18 ends. On the other rink Teresa Rivers, Dawn Graham and Ann Cottle (skip) had a much harder game. At nine ends the home team were 8-6 ahead, and then Heavitree scored a 4 to take the lead before Budleigh again drew level at 15 ends with both teams on 13. At 17 ends the score was still level at 14 each before the visitors managed 2 shots on the last end to win 14-16.Later in the week six local teams visited Budleigh to spend a pleasant afternoon and compete for the Jubilee Trophy. The competition is played on a round robin basis with the highest scoring team winning the Trophy.The visitors were from Sidmouth, Phear Park, Madeira, Honiton, Seaton and Exonia and Seaton, led by Joan Miles, proved to be the top scoring away team with plus 14 shots.The Games Club President, Mrs Dianzee Lowe was happy to present the prizes but the Captain, Bunty Hudson, had to help out as the President herself had skipped her team to victory!The President, most ably supported by Teresa Rivers and Maggie Dance, won the competition with plus 20 shots and received the Trophy from the Captain for Budleigh, as a Club, to retain for the next year. Everyone enjoyed the friendly afternoon and also the delicious cream tea that was served up.The delightful scones that went with the cream tea had been baked by most helpful club member Bert Mangeng, and very tasty they were too!.The proceeds of the raffle amounted to £25.00 and all the money will be donated to the Devon County Amy Rose Team Fund.
