Welcome to Mayflower Bridge Club
Welcome to the Mayflower Bridge Club Website.

Mayflower Bridge Club meets on a Tuesday Night at Mountnessing Village Hall @7.20. A very sociable club that attracts an excellent standard of players.​

There are generally 10-14 tables of hard fought but friendly bridge all under the auspices of the EBU. Visitors always welcome - we are not hosted but given some notice a partner can usually be found.

Peter Williamson is very kindly putting together a the history of the club. Peter is the last playing founder of the original club.

If you have old pictures or anecdotes of the club let's get them on the website for posterity.

Warboys (and girl)!
Warboys (and girl)!

Success at the Warboys Competition with Robert Eliot with A. Partner won the A - list comp and Jon Ward with A. Partner won the B/C list competition very well done chaps. With an honourable mention to Marcia Levan-Harris and John McCoy who netted a second place in the B/C list.

 

Excellent work from all concerned.

Mayflower Whitewash (almost) at Gwen Herga Ladies
Mayflower Whitewash (almost) at Gwen Herga Ladies

A stunning performance by Mayflower Ladies at the Gwen Herga - the county ladies pairs competition. Nearly a whitewash with Marcia Levan-Harris and Ann Morgan winning narrowly from June Brown and Angela Fenton and Linda Fleet coming third with erstwhile member Coral Fallon. Congratulations to all - very well played against a strong field.

In the mens competition the John's Cosgrove and McCoy managed a highly creditable second place against a field largely populated by county players.

Green Tea?
Green Tea?

There has been a suggestion (from a Blue Planet viewer?) that the waste of both plastic and money associated with the tea in plastic cups could be avoided if people brought/took away their own mugs! If you would like more information on the subject please click here  https://skyoceanrescue.com/  .There are obviously pro's and con's - let's have your thoughts!

Let There Be Upgraded Lights - Please!!
Let There Be Upgraded Lights - Please!!

The electricians arrived to change the lights, but said it was too dark to work safely.

But seriously further bookings have been unearthed causing another postponement! 3rd weekend in Februaryis the latest promise.

The delays have been brought about by the booking officer (now retired) for the hall not updating the booking calendar. This meant clashes were discovered after the electricians were booked. Please accept the MVH committees apologies for the delay. 

Sparkling Win for Mayflower - The Magnificent 8
Sparkling Win for Mayflower - The Magnificent 8

The great and good of Essex Bridge assembled for the Fletcher Trophy and were left trailing in the wake of our 'Magnificent 8': Alan Aylott and Jon Ward, Angela Fenton and June Brown, Catriona Lovett and Mike Harbour, George and Maureen Vede.

A stunning win by 21 VP's, to put that in context they scored 25% more VP's than the runners up.

Well done to the Magnificent 8.

This will be a section that will be updated on a regular basis giving my thoughts on where we are, what we need to progress, what you can do for your club, what the club can do for you. With aspirations some achievable some  little more than pipe dreams!

I am hopeful that this will be the instigator of debate about the future of bridge locally and how we can pass it on to the next generation in a reasonably healthy state. The current demographics of most bridge clubs would seem to show us on the same downward spiral as Woolworths, C and A and Spangles. Bridge is too good a pastime to let it go down the route of pick n'mix!

I will be giving my thoughts, however your thoughts are essential. It is my intention to use this website as an open forum for ideas and plans for developing bridge.

John
