Welcome
Welcome

Welcome to Blewbury Bridge Club. We normally play in the Vale Room at Blewbury Village Hall and have members from Didcot and Abingdon, as well as from other villages near Blewbury such as Upton, Hagbourne, and the Astons.  The club plays duplicate bridge on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting at 7.30pm prompt (please arrive by 7.20pm). Visitors are always warmly welcomed.

We also often run friendly and relaxed Novices sessions on Friday evenings.

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

The Annual General Meeting of the Club will be held on Thursday 5th.October at 7pm in the Vale Room. The names of any proposals for new Officers or Committee Members, or suggestions for items to be discussed, should be notified to the Chairman or Secretary beforehand, the former to include Proposer and Seconder. 

ABINGDON CAFE BRIDGE

You are invited to this year's Cafe Bridge event in Abingdon, on 19th October.

It will be the third year of this enjoyable event, in which the duplicate bridge movement is not just around the room; it is around the town! We have five venues and, rather like musical chairs, the one you visit at lunchtime will be where you stop and eat. 

Starting at 10.00 and finishing soon after 4.00, this is a social bridge event, for all standards, and no rankings or master points will be involved, but there will be a few bottles of wine distributed afterwards (for 'improvers', as well as the best).

The cost will be £60 per pair and this will include:

  • a day of convivial bridge;
  • tea/coffee at the beginning and end, with cakes in the afternoon;
  • lunches;
  • prizes.

The balance of £10-£15 per pair will go to this year's chosen charity, Parkinsons UK, which does so much good work in supporting sufferers and also funds research.

To register your interest and receive further details please just contact Kevin Carter, at kevin@profundus.com.
