Visitors are always welcome

Welcome to the Henfield Duplicate Bridge Society web site.  The club meets for duplicate bridge every Thursday afternoon at the Henfield Hall, Henfield.  Click "information" for a  map and details.  Visitors are always welcome, even to club competition sessions.  Join us for a competitive, friendly game of bridge on Thursday afternoons. We look forward to seeing you.

Children in Need 2017

​​​​​​Our annual event for Children In Need  was on Thursday, November 16, this year from two to five pm.  We had seven and a half tables and the final amount raised (after a recount) was  £198  which we will be sending off immediately.  So thank you to everyone who came to support us, for your generosity and also thank you to some who could not be there but left donations which have been included.   

 

Parkinson's Charity Event.

Mid Sussex and West Sussex Bridge clubs are combining to hold an event on the evening of  November 27th in aid of the Parkinson's Charity and they have asked some local clubs to help to advertise it.   Peter and Jo are going to suport it and if there are any other pairs who would be interested to join us from Henfield we could perhaps combine for lifts. let us know if that may be the case. 

Success at the SCCBA tournament

We are delighted to tell members about Lynne Spooner and Sue Howley.  These ladies entered the SCCBA Ladies Pairs event held at Patcham Bridge Club on Sunday October 15th.  There were 24 pairs in the competition and Sue and Lynne came 3rd.  So congratulations to them and you can see them photographed on the SCCBA site at the moment.  

WBF 2017 Laws

Just when were all getting used to what to do when something happens, the WBF has issued (as it does every 10 years) revised laws. A new law book is available for download from the EBU website or harcd copies can be purchased from the same source, so that you have something to hold.

If you want to know more please click here for a useful summary.

If you do have a proiblem, give your director a chance to thumb through the book to find out what he or she has to do!

P.S. this download is large (22 pages) and will take along time to load.

 

 

New Parking Regulations

From 1st April 2017 Horsham District Council will be charging for car parking in their car parks. These include the Henfield Hall car park and the Henfield Library car park.  I have summarised the charges as they will affect you, the bridge club users.

Short stay infrequent users will pay £1.50 for a maximum stay of four hours.  This will have to be paid by cash, card or phone at a machine in the car park.  

Short stay regular users can purchase an annual disc.  This costs £12 and entitles the holder to use the car park for the maximum stay period of four hours per visit.

The second option is the one we hope our regular members will take up as it is very cheap  (only 23pence a week).  The discs are available from H.D.C. and you can apply for them by phone.     Discs are not vehicle specific and can be shared with visitors, carers et al and used in any of the participating rural car parks. Just check on the maximum hours allowed in other areas.  It is not always the same as Henfield.     

Need A Partner?

If You are looking for a partner, then ask Jo. She'll try and match you up. Please phone her on 01273 492251 giving her as much notice as possible.

Timing

We ask all members to be seated by 1:55 p.m. so that play can start promptly at 2:00 p.m.
