Christmas Party

Monday 8 December 2014
Kendal Golf Club

The Christmas Party was very successful with an excellent meal followed by 17 tables of bridge.

Thank you to everyone who bought raffle tickets - £234 will go to South Lakeland MIND.

Congratulations to the winners of the bridge, Ina Gray and Peter Goulding

South Lakeland Mind exists to enhance the quality of life of people experiencing mental and emotional distress and to work generally towards the promotion of better mental health and a greater sense of wellbeing for people in South Lakeland.

New Premises Update

Work is continuing in the search for new premises for Kendal Bridge Club. The possibility of extending and improving Abbot Hall Social Centre has been raised once again. A joint working group representing KBC and AHSC committees has been formed to negotiate whether a workable agreement can be reached that will meet the aspirations of both, and be consistent with our charitable aims and legal responsibilities.

At the same time we continue to explore several other options. Many of you know that Nether Hall, near Kendal Parish Church, has been under consideration but there is no progress at the moment because of ongoing legal issues.
