Welcome to Henfield Duplicate Bridge Society
Visitors are always welcome
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.

The Rowlands Trophuy

June, June, July and August are traditionally Rowlands Trophy months.  The winner of this competition will be the player with the highest average percentage over their best five sessions having played with three different people. This competition in no way affects the normal bridge scoring.  There are a number of pairs who prefer not to take part and they play as normal.  The weekly results and the Rowlands scores are registered seperately on line. So do not let it put you off coming.  We remain delighted to see everyone. 

The Beryl Pitman Trophy

On Thursday 4th May we held the annual Beryl Pitman Trophy event. This is held in memory of Beryl who was for many years a member, committee member and director at the club. All table monies plus any extra donations are sent to the Chailey Hospice where Beryl died. This year we are able to send £136.  thank you to those who contributed to this donation.  

Joan Mason

We regret to have to tell members of the death of Joan Mason.  Joan has been a regular member of the club for several years and partnered Bob Whiting. We have sent condolences to the family and Hugh and I went to the funeral on behalf of the club on Wednesday 10th May at the Worthing Crematorium,  Findon.  

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 card or phone at a machine in the car park.  There is no option for cash payments.

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.   At the moment to encourage people to buy discs Horsham are offering two for the price of one. 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. 

Do not get caught out from 1st April and do carry on coming.  We are anxious that this situation will not result in a fall in numbers.  Jo    

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.
