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.


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

Christmas Bridge arrangements

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. 

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.

  1. Apologies:  these were received from Margaret Collins, Hazel David, Sandra Kay Dennison, Sue Howley, Sue Peters, Ian Staveley, Pippa Turner, Phil Turner, Bob Whiting, Rose Windler, Graham Walker and Gloria Flint.

  1. The Resolution:  The chairman read out the resolution.  ‘That the Henfield Duplicate Bridge Society be wound up at the close of play on Thursday 31st January 2019, the financial balance at that point to be donated to three registered charities, with equal amounts going to The Henfield Hall, St. Barnabas Hospice at Worthing and St. Peter & St. James Hospice at Chailey.’

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.
