A well-attended Seniors dinner saw the annual presentation of all the Seniors Trophies won in 2023 and there was only one prize winner absent, an excellent turnout.

The evening ran very smoothly thanks to the Master of Ceremonies Tony Scott. Seniors Captain Robert Miller gave a fine summing up of his year, which has been successful despite one of the worst years on record for weather. He reported that the Seniors Section now numbers 215.

Mendip reached the semi-final of the Somerset Scratch Cup under the able captaincy of Martin Myers who is now stepping down after leading the team for 6 years. Mendip under the captaincy of Steve Davis also reached the Semi Final of the Seniors Somerset Rose Bowl losing to the eventual winners Burnham and Berrow.
