Happy Christmas to you all.

20 Dec is Christmas Fun Bridge at Roundswell after Mulled Wine and Mince Pies from 6.45. No partner is needed and all are welcome.

The first bridge after Christmas is Open Pairs on January 3.

We were saddened to hear of the recent death of Keith Evers at 102. Keith played regulaly and at a very high standard in North Devon for over forty years. The Barnstaple Honours listings show him winning both the League and The Championship Pairs in 1974 and other club and section events thereafter; until well into his nineties in 2011 playing with Betty Bradford he was in the team which won the Northern Section League. Shortly after that he moved to be with his son on the Isle of Wight.  Keith will always  be remembered as a perfect gentleman both at the table and away from it. Our sympathies go to his friends and family.

The Anoyrkatis family won the Swiss Teams at The EBU Riviera Congress in Torquay at the end of June 2017, following Sam & Theo's triumph in the Under 21 Championship Pairs at The Easter Festival in London. In July Theo played in The England Team at Under 16 level in the European Youth Championships in Slovakia.  In December 2017 Sam & Theo played for the England Under 21 team in The Channel Trophy near Brussels. Sam & Theo represented England in February 2018 in The Peggy Bayer, the Under 21 Home International Series, beating both Scotland and Northern Ireland 60-0 and Ireland 50.55-9.45. An outstanding performance. They have now played in the Under 21 team in The World Youth Championshipsin China in August 2018. Meanwhile Sally has represented England in The Lady Milne again.
