The various bridge groups in the Farnham area combined to run an "All Farnham" Festival of Bridge in the Maltings Great Hall on the afternoon of Friday 24th August. There were over 160 participants,making this the biggest bridge event to be held in Farnham for decades. Particants ages ranged from 8 years old to 99 and there were different sections of bridge to suit all abilities, from beginner to grand master with Weydon School well represented . All feedback to date has been that it was a uniquely enjoyable and friendly event, really demonstrating that the great game of bridge is alive and well in Farnham and has appeal for all ages and abilities.
Farnham Bridge Club would like to extend a special THANK YOU to our members Tony Philpott and Mike O'Donnell, who were the Co-organisers of the All Farnham Festival of Bridge.
Hopefully, the Festival will become part of the Farnham bridge calendar. There are also plans to hold a "Farnham Cafe Bridge" event on Monday May 13th next year.
Full results of the "Open" and "No Fear" sections are available on the Farnham and Bourne club websites (http://www.bridgewebs.com/farnham/ and http://www.bridgewebs.com/bournefarnham/). For more details and photos click on Farnham Bridge News.

Well done and thank you to Graham Davison, Gabriel Hearst, Jane and Tim Green , for representing our club with credit in the Surrey Affiliated Clubs teams of four Wanborough cup. Our team finished in the top half. The event was won by a Wimbledon team that included top internationals Frances Hinden and Geoffrey Allerton.
The EBU National Garden Cities Cup also took place this week-end. This competition is for affiliated clubs teams of 8 winners from across England counties. It is quite an achievement for any club team to simply make this national final. Tunbridge Wells won the overall event. The Reading team which included Tim Rees finished 3rd, and the Petersfield team which included Gabriel Hearst , Mike Kinsey and Mike Fithyan finished creditably too.
