It's "More Herbs less Salt Day" today, Saturday.
Our thoughts are with Linda Robertson at this time and also to Tom and Dad, Bert - will keep you posted.
I am pleased to let you know that Janet is recovering well from her hip operation and should be out of hospital today, Friday. Gaby has fractured her collar bone - hope for a speedy recovery.
It was a poor week for slams with only 11 small slams being bid and made.
Message received from Peggy's daughter - "Dear Sue, Committee and Members - Thank you so much for your kind thoughts and good wishes, and for the beautiful bouquet of flowers which Finita brought yesterday arranged for by the Bridge Club. We were most touched and my Mother delighted to have them to remind her of you all - also for the ""Good Wishes" cards signed by so many of our Members. They will certainly help my Mother to get better more quickly and remind us daily of your concern and interest. She looks forward to returning to the Club soonest possible - but to date not sure when that will be! Much love from Peggy and Carol".

“We hope that your organisation can help by supporting and publicising our cause. Together with some caring friends, we are trying to raise money to help save the elephants and rhinos in East Africa. As you may know, poaching has reached epidemic numbers and they are now in danger of becoming extinct within the next decade. Consequently we are organising some fund-raising events in Jávea:

A CHARITY WALK FOR GLOBAL MARCH FOR ELEPHANTS AND RHINOS
• The Walk on Sunday 4th October is part of Global March for Elephants and Rhinos which is taking place all around the world on that day in over 100 cities. The Jávea walk will start from the Arenal car park near the Mas-y-Mas supermarket at 10.30 and finish at the Sports Stadium in the Port.
• Entry is €10 for families, €5 per adult and free for school children (who are encouraged to raise sponsorship)

During August - only bottles will be given for prizes - no tokens and it has also been decided to stop our lucky numbers competition with fewer members around - start again w/c Monday 31st August.
Our teaching programme reconvenes in the autumn - flyers are available at the club, for advertising the sessions, for members to distribute where appropriate - don't forget the students are future members of our club.
