Short Mat Friendly vs Seend

Devizes entertained Seend and had a very enjoyable evening of bowls. Playing two triples and a rink, it was a very close game… our visitors ended the evening with a narrow victory winning 46 points to 40.

The match was followed by a buffet supper, and we look forward to a return match at Seend next month.

Defib Training

Huge thanks to Martin Hambling from Star Care Medical Professionals for an excellent demonstration on how to respond in case of cardiac arrest. His lighthearted yet clear and expert approach will without doubt have helped members present to be more confident in delivering this critical first aid to a fellow citizen in their time of need.


A refresher on CPR was also very well received… I had forgotten exactly where to apply pressure, and most importantly just how much pressure to apply in order to give effective resuscitation.


Thanks also to club member Jo for organising and taking on guardianship of the DBC defibrillator and thank you to those members of our club who came along to receive this vital training.
