Chris Raymond from the Merseyside & Cheshire Bridge Association organised this fun and instructive evening.  It was a great success with 13 very helpful experts and 39 eager players wishing to improve their game.

Committee minutes

Minutes of committee meetings are published on this website once they have been ratified by the following meeting. This means that there is usually a gap of two months between the meeting being held and the minutes being published.

The minutes of the January meeting have now been uploaded and can be viewed in the "Members only" area of the website on the "Member only documents" page which also contains AGM papers and updates on the enhancement project.

Garden Cities Trophy

The Garden Cities Trophy is an annual EBU competition in which teams of eight from one club represent their county. The Deva has been chosen to represent Cheshire & Merseyside in this year’s competition and our team, consisting of Seb/Jones/Keith Shuttleworth, David Stevenson/Liz Commins, Peter Hall/David Flacks and Paul Roberts/John Hampson, finished in a very creditable second place in the northern qualifying round.

This means that our team has qualified for the national final which takes place in Solihull on June 23rd. Good luck!
