Fyfield Bridge Club - December Newsletter
At the AGM on November 8th we were fortunate to be able to report a third successive successful year in terms of both membership numbers and financial health. We have all worked hard to keep the club as friendly as possible where the social side ranks equally with our aim to improve the quality of play. The resultant financial stability means that the club can now not only broaden its horizons particularly in the training area but also ensure its continued existence for the foreseeable future.
We also took the opportunity at the AGM to celebrate the achievements of our most successful members. Chairman Martin Collier presented the inaugural Wells Trophy for the best Monday partnership to Brenda Dunsford and John Bicknell, the Endeavour Cup for the most improved player over the past year to JoAnn O’Neil, and the Hadley Cup for the best Thursday partnership to Ailsa and Michael Wildig.
Retirement is often seen as a golden age of leisure time and for the most part this is true but for some fate steps in and the amount of leisure time can become a burden. There are many local activities and clubs to join and bridge is just one of them, but it does provide a good social outlet and there is much to stimulate the grey matter. For younger working people it can provide long term interest and an antidote to the stresses of everyday life.

We now look forward to our Christmas Socials on Monday 17th and Thursday 20th December.
I wish you all a very merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year.
