More news, no ads


Buttonhole Lake in Marshland St James held its Defibrillator Match which had been postponed a few times due to the lockdown.

The match and other donations from so many kind people resulted in £2,089 raised towards a new A E.D. defibrillator machine, case and lifebuoys around the lake.

There was a shield for the winning pair, named in honour of all the good work by Nick Watson for his relentless fundraising and commitment to the lake.

Many contributors also played a big part, and Darryl Spain of Outdoor Antics was thanked for providing many match prizes.

The winning pair with a combined weight of 96lbs 11oz were John Bishop and Pete Marson.

The midweek match under floodlights saw Jonny Clark take first place with 80lbs 9oz .

Next match will be on Saturday, which is qualifier three for a place in the grand final with a prize of £1,500 for the winner.
