Two of the leading lights in the bowls world were the star turns at a Huntingdon Indoor Bowls Club bash on Sunday.

Two-time Scottish International singles champion and current world number three Nicky Brett, who is based in nearby Yaxley, joined three-time Commonwealth Games gold medallist Ellen Falkner as the St Peters Road venue played host to a Bowls Challenge event.

Brett and Faulkner, who are the current English mixed pairs champions, took on club members in a series of games and even laid on an exhibition match which included playing a blindfolded end with incredible accuracy.

The event was sponsored by Stuart & Co Insurance Consultants.
