SUN cream, visors and hats have been “de rigueur” as the outdoor season has begun to warm up in more ways than one, writes Mary Ann Dowrick.

A Madeira trio skipped by Sue Harriott with Liz Smerdon and Angela Denner took the honours from Sidmouth and scorched through to the finals of the County triples to be played at Budleigh Salterton next month.

Meanwhile, four of Madeira’s top ladies, Liz Smerdon, Sue Harriott, Jan Roberts and Liz Healy, were among those selected to represent Devon in a Johns Trophy match against Gloucestershire.
