If you have learned to play bridge but simply need a chance to practice, you are welcome to come along on Tuesday afternoons and join our Supervised Play Sessions starting at 2.00pm.  The format is a short lesson followed by friendly play.  These are Novice sessions so not suitable for regular club players and masterpoints are not awarded.  We look forward to seeing you there.  Call Christine on 07989 440238 for more details or send an e-mail to Christine.macf@btinternet.com
