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.
Following the Special General Meeting detailed below a group of members volunteered to form a committee to keep the club open. This changes
everything and so there has been another meeting arranged, a) to rescind the previous decision to donate club funds to charities
and b) to hold elections for a new committee. The date for the meeting is 17th January at the Thursday bridge session.
There will be bridge as usual on Thursday December 20th but there will be no bridge the following week on Thursday 27th as the Hall will be shut.
We start bridge again on Thursday Jan 3rd and on JAn.10th there will be will be the Christmas Party to celebrate that the
club is going to stay open rather than closing. So come along to these events and support us.
HENFIELD DUPLICATE BRIDGE SOCIETY
MINUTES OF THE SPECIAL GENERAL MEETING
held on Thursday 29th November 2018
Present: Peter Bates, Hugh Doohan, Sue Cottrell, Jon Fitton, Jim Downes, Jude Gill, Gary Inkpen, Barbara Dakin, Penny Hill, Jo & Geoff Jewson, Howard da Vall, David Pickford, Judy Taylor, Stephen Crabtree, Jane Ross, Bryan Davies, Lynne Spooner, Angela Burgess and Margaret Harrison.
There was some discussion about the possible reasons for the lack of numbers, and whether putting up the table money would help. David Pickford said that he would be prepared to take on the post of Treasurer.
Peter then asked for a show of hands to vote for the Resolution. There were 29 in favour (including those who had registered their vote before the meeting) and 3 against. The Resolution was therefore agreed.
The Chairman then said that there are another two months of play, and should any members come forward to fill other vacancies on the Committee, and numbers coming every week increased, there would be every possibility of the club continuing.
