AT the inter-church games evening held last week at Somers Park Avenue Methodist Church Hall, a team of David and Margaret Allen (playing snooker and Ludo respectively) and Meg Allsopp (table tennis) represented St Peter's Church, Powick.

The team which represented St James' Callow End comprised Phil and Joy Bunyan (table tennis and snooker) and Rita de Boer (Ludo). Phil Bunyan reached the table tennis final but lost to Anthony Wiseman (of St Joseph's) and Rita de Boer won the Ludo final defeating Margaret Allen. St Joseph's Church were the overall winners with St James, Callow End runners-up. The clergy contest of table tennis was won by Reverend Rosemary Herbert of St James, West Malvern.
