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.

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    

Henry Treadwell

We regret to announce the death of a very long established member of the club, Henry Treadwell.  Bad health had prevented him from playing at the club for the last two years.  Last Friday his wife suffered a heart attack and also  died.  There will be a joint funeral and arrangements are as follows.. April 4th; Cremation at Worthing Crematorium at 12.20 followed by a service at St Michael and all Angels Church, Church Lane. Southwick and afterwards a gathering at the Adur Valley Indoor Bowls Club.

THE NEW YEAR PARTY

Our first event of 2016 was the New Year Party which we held on January 12.  It was a great success.  We had eight and a half tables, members brought a variety of delicious and interesting food and the cards, some of which were goulashed, proved challenging, interesting and well distributed.  I hope it augurs well for the coming year.  We would like to see that many tables every week - more if possible.  So may I encourage members to make a late New Year resolution and come to the H.D.B.S. regularly in 2017.

 

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.
