Welcome to West Norfolk & King's Lynn Bridge Club
Welcome to West Norfolk & King's Lynn Bridge Club

West Norfolk and King's Lynn Bridge Club was formed in December 1945 and is affiliated to the English Bridge Union and the Norfolk Contract Bridge Association. We meet on Monday evenings at the South Wootton Village Hall, a bright modern building which can comfortably fit up to 15 tables.

We welcome visitors and strive to provide friendly and relaxed evenings when players compete fairly and courteously. We support fully the "Best Behaviour at Bridge" code introduced by the English Bridge Union which is set out on the General Information page.

SHEILA WARNER

It was with great sadness we learned that Sheila passed away in the early hours of Monday morning after a long illness. Our condolences go to Tony and all her family.

Sheila played bridge with Tony at King's Lynn from the 1960s. She played at a very good level competitively but in a friendly way and always with a warm welcome to those coming to her table. She won most of the club's trophy events several times and played regularly for Norfolk including the first team occasionally.

She was a very good administrator borne out by her many years as Club Secretary. However, she will be most remembered for her excellent organisation of the Norfolk Congress over nearly 50 years mostly as Congress Secretary. It was predominantly for this that she was the recipient of the E.B.U.s prestigeous Dimmie Fleming Award in 2004.

Sheila will be sorely missed not only by our members but the entire Norfolk bridge-playing community.

THE FUNERAL SERVICE WILL BE AT MINTLYN CREMATORIUM ON FRIDAY 9 MARCH AT 4.OO P.M. Family flowers only. Donations for The Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House may be made at the service or online via the website of Thornley Funeral Services. Austin Street, King's Lynn, PE30 1QH.

 

BILL MASSEY

It is with much sadness that we have learned of the passing of Bill Massey. Our condolences go to all his family.

Wg.Cdr. Bill Massey was based at RAF Marham and played at a high standard at both King's Lynn and Swaffham Bridge Clubs and was always cheerful and courteous. He was largely responsible for building up the club at Swaffham. When ill health reduced his mobility Bill became a leading member of the online Bridge Club Live where there have been many tributes paid.

The funeral service is at 2.30 p.m. on 7 March at Mintlyn Crematorium. Bill's son Kevin would be delighted if you could join the family for refreshments afterwards at the Conservative Club at 7 Gayton Road, Gaywood PE30 4EA. In order to estimate the number to be catered for, please contact Alistair Sutherland by email asuth57@gmail.com or by telephone 01485 528965 if you will be attending.
