Dick Green

We are sad to report that Dick Green died on Friday 22nd January 2016. Dick had been a member of the ECBA since 1958. Dick served as Chairman of the ECBA from 1984 - 2010 and at the time of his death was the Vice President of the ECBA.

The funeral will take place at 12:45 on Friday 5th February at Saint Laurence Church, St. Mary's Lane, Corbets Tey Road, Upminster, RM14 2BB. The service will be followed by a celebration of Dick's life at The Cranleigh, 84 Station Road, Hornchurch RM12 6LX. 

A full In Memoriam is being prepared. Follow the link for a necessarily brief notice for EBU News.  

Our thoughts are with Dick's wife Margaret and his family.

EBU Cyprus Congress - February 2016

We're a bit short of news at the moment - so a brief update on the above. Chris Taylor (him again) is out there playing with David Wing and - with team-mates Maria Budd and Mark Westley (Herts) - came second in the Pivot Teams. Apparently he's not just wasting his time playing bridge, but is enjoying the scenery and history of the place.

ECBA Swiss Pairs - 10th January 2016

Well done to Paul Spencer & Marc Chawner who won this year's Swiss Pairs, winning all their matches. Martin & Sandy Smith were second and Alan Bryant & Geoff Webber were third.

The top of the leader-board for the Eve Goblets is unchanged with Margaret Curtis and Robert Elliott remaining in the top places for the Ladies and Gentlemen respectively. 

Peebles Again ...
Peebles Again ...

Those of you who think Essex players should get out more will have their hearts warmed by the news that our intrepid players Peter Oake, Robert Elliott, Chris Taylor and Albert "Alison" Kitchin made it out of the country to the SBU Winter Congress at Peebles.

They had a solid congress coming 12th in the Teams and with Chris & Albert 16th in the Swiss Pairs, with Peter & Robert just behind in 18th.

Quite why Albert had to turn up looking like this is unclear - maybe he thought it was mixed teams - but here he is with Peter.
