Our Club Mobile Phone has had to be upgraded and as a result the telephone number has changed. it is 07957 281481.
Please make a note of it and use it if you need to let us know that you are definitely coming but will be late, or to give us any other message. Thank you
The club no longer has a student table on Thursday afternoons, so it has been agreed by the committee that the session will be run in the same way as on a Wednesday. We hope this will encourage more members to play on a Thursday, whilst keeping the friendly and supportive ethos associated with the club.
At the AGM next May we shall review the change to Thursday sessions, taking into consideration feedback from members.
Welcome to the Birches Bridge Club web site.
The Birches Bridge Club was formed in 2000 in order to enable a couple of teachers in the area to help provide students a venue to play outside their classes. It meets three times a week, Monday evenings, Wednesday and Thursday afternoons. Precision or any other complicated systems are not encourged or played.
Scoring is electronic and boards with printouts of the hands are used on all three days. Results are available at the end of each session but in any event are posted onto the website www.bridgewebs.com/birches within 24 hours.
The club is affiliated to the EBU.
We have a full competitions programme for all three sessions, some of which are limited to members only. We welcome new members and visitors, but please contact our Secretary to make sure there are no restrictions on play at the session in question.

News of Building Works at Much Birch Community Hall
Phase 1 of the extension to the Hall is still in progress.
Fire Escape routes
1. The Arthur Harris entrance/exit door.
2. Through the rear fire door of the Hall and proceed along the path to the left of the building as you leave the Hall.
3. From the kitchen, rear lobby or first floor should exit the building through the door at the bottom of the stairs and proceed as above.
There are still fewer parking places in the car park and the overspill space in the Court Farm area is still available. A torch would be useful after dark as the overspill is unlit.
