In Memoriam
John Peacock: 1937-2017

John passed away on Friday 8th September. Our thoughts are with Carol at this time.

The funeral will be held on Friday 29th September at 12:30 at Chelmsford Crematorium, North Chapel. There will be a reception afterwards at the Bear, Stock

John was well known to a lot of Essex players, as he competed in many Essex Clubs, Essex competitions and congresses further afield. At one time, he was also a member of the County Squad.  During his bridge playing years, he developed a number of long term partnerships.

John was a founder member of the Mayflower Bridge Club, which started 45 years ago. It merged with The Billericay Bridge Club in the 1990's and is now known as The Billericay Mayflower Bridge Club. John had various roles on the committee over the years and became Chairman about 12 years ago. His hard work and dedication will be missed by everyone.

Miranda Perkins

We are sad to announce the death of Miranda Perkins who was a five-times-a-week player well known in the Brentwood / Billericay area. Miranda died on Sunday 16th July 2017. Her funeral is at the Catholic Church in Ingatestone on Thursday 10th August at 1pm. All bridge players are welcome to the funeral and tea afterwards. Paola her daughter would like to know numbers – please contact her on 07976-845760.

Barry Newman

We are sorry to report the death of Barry Newman on Thursday 5th January 2017. Although he had very poor health through last year, Barry died suddenly and unexpectedly.

Barry was a member of both Castle and Rayleigh & Rochford Bridge Clubs and had for many years played in the South Essex Bridge League.

Vernon Madge

We are sorry to announce the death on Sunday 12th June 2016 of Vernon Madge. Vernon was aged 81 and had been a member of "The Good Guys" - a team that has played in the West Essex League for many years - and was also a regular at Loughton Bridge Club, though he had moved away to Bath where he also played bridge. Anyone with more information might like to let the ECBA webmaster know. 

Dick Green

We are sad to report that Dick Green died on Friday 22nd January 2016.

Dick joined the Association in 1958 and soon made his mark at the table and on the administrative side. With Keith Stanley, Gerard Faulkner and Mike Hall, county competitions were won as well as national events – the Field Cup, The Committee Cup and an international competition in Holland.

Dick became auditor to the EBU through his work, and an Essex county delegate. 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 took place at 12:45 on Friday 5th February at Saint Laurence Church, St. Mary's Lane, Corbets Tey Road, Upminster, RM14 2BB. The service was followed by a celebration of Dick's life at The Cranleigh, 84 Station Road, Hornchurch RM12 6LX. 

A full In Memoriam is being prepared.   

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

Sue's final blog

  • It was a perfect day. Weather - raining Sunday, windy Tuesday, just right Monday.
  • Packed church with most of my family and friends able to attend.
  • Order of service as I would have liked it ( well I did choose it all myself !! )
  • Sadness, but fun and humour throughout the service - how appropriate.
  • Although he only saw me once, I think I made a lasting impression on the vicar !!
  • Celebration at The Lawn - the perfect setting. Food, drink and good company and above all lovely memories.
  • Thanks everyone and goodbye.
Po Shing Lee

It is with great sadness that we have to announce death of Po Shing Lee at the age of 44. Although Po has not played bridge in Essex for several years due to illness and only moved to Essex around 15 years ago, in that time he had good results in county and national competitions, played in the county team and served on the committee as 'School Liaison Officer' for a number of years. He was also involved in online bridge, working with ‘Bridge Club Live’. Po was a graduate of Trinity College, Cambridge. Our sympathies go to his widow and son.

Tony Judge

The ECBA is sad to announce the death of Tony Judge. In recent years Tony played in Hertfordshire but in his younger years he played in and for Essex with some success. He was a member of the team when Essex won the Pachabo Cup in 1980 and in 1984 his team won through to the semi-final of the Gold Cup.


The funeral was held at St. Thomas More RC Church, Hodings Road, Harlow, CM20 1NW, at 11:30 on Wednesday 11th March 2015.
