We look forward to seeing you.

Children in Need 2017

​​​​​​Our annual event for Children In Need  will be on Thursday, November 16, this year from two to five pm.  This is a simultaneous  duplicate pairs event with the same boards played all over the country.  All table money plus any further donations will be sent to the charity.  We hope this event will be a big success and so do please put in in your diary, arrange a partner for yourself and come along. Why not bring friends as well.  Everyone will be wlecome and the more we have the greater our contribution will be to this good cause.  Booklets are issued afterwards to explain the hands. 

 

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.

 

 

Rowlands Trophy

The Rowlands Trophy competition which runs from June to August is now over.  The winner is Peter Bates with 60%  so congratulations to him.  He was closely followed by Angela Burgess with 57%   and Julia Simpson with 56% so congratulations go to them both as well. 

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.     

A.G.M.

The Annual General Meeting of the H.D.B.S. took place on Thursday 9th March at the Hall at 2 p.m. There was no contentious business so it was very short and the normal bridge afternoon was only be briefly delayed. the Committee remains the same as do the membership fee of £5 and the voucher system which allows members to play at £2 per session. 

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.
