New General Data Protection Regulations which come into force on May 25th oblige us to provide information about personal data which we keep.  We must make known what personal date we keep, why we keep it, how it is obtained,  who has access to it and how we ensure that it is kept securely.

Our Privacy Policy can be seen by clicking on Privacy Notice in the left hand column.

Disabled Parking

We are receiving an increasing number of complaints from blue badge holders that they cannot park in the disabled car parking spaces and there seem to be cars parked there without badges. 

If you do hold a blue badge then please display it. If however you have been parking there for convenience please use the car parking spaces provided behind the building or alternatively on a very busy day it is acceptable to park carefully on the drive. 

Thank you for your cooperation.

Smoking & Parking

Would all smokers please show consideration to other bridge players by smoking in the designated area out through the bar door at the back of the barn.

Car parking in the courtyard is strictly for residents, disabled drivers and the management.  There is ample parking in the rear car parks which are patrolled by the security guard between 1900 and 2300 hrs.  On exceptionally busy days parking is allowed on the road leading to the car parks.

Your co-operation is much appreciated. 

League of Eight

The 2018/19 league of eight season will be starting in September and we are keen to encourage members to play. If anyone is interested please contact Heather Perry or email the club.  We currently have 3 teams in the LO8.                                                     

Please arrive in good time

Try to arrive 10 minutes before the starting time for any bridge session.

If you might be late phone 01628 668700 to notify the Director, or contact your partner.

It is very unhelpful and impolite to the Director, your partner and the other players to be late

If you are late, without having notified the Club, you might not be allowed to play.  This is especially important for the larger sessions where table numbering and movement might need to be changed according to the number of tables in play.

Our Bridgewebs web site makes "Play it Again" facilities available for any hand which has been played at a Club pairs event.  It also can show detailed Results Analysis for any player in an event.
