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.
To ensure that our data about members is accurate and up-to-date we are asking all members to complete and sign a new Membership Application Form and post it in the post box situated near the door of the office. Or you can hand it to Chrys Poole, who will have full access to this information.
Please display your Blue Badge permit if you park in one of our Disabled Parking spaces.
Otherwise please use the car park behind the building, or 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 hosting three teams:
A Team Captain: Ron Hoar
B Team Captain: Maggi Giblin
C Team Captain: Anna Assaf
We wish them a successful and enjoyable season.
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.
