A Torquay bowls 'double act has been rewarded after a two-year wait.

The grandfather and grandson have finally been presented with their Bowls County Badges.

Ian Wookey and Owen Haile-Reeson have been bowling together for seven years since Owen was 13, and gained their County Badges together two years ago whilst playing for the Upton Bowls Club.

Sadly the outbreak of Coronavirus delayed the pair receiving their badges, but they were finally able to collect them when they were invited to attend a special presentation recently at Dorchester Bowling Club
