PROFESSIONAL AND TRADES PEOPLE

AS A SERVICE TO OUR MEMBERS WE ARE COMPILING A LIST OF PROFESSIONALS AND TRADES PEOPLE. IF YOU HAVE SUGGESTIONS FOR THIS LIST PLEASE WRITE THEM ON THE LIST ON THE NOTICEBOARD. MEMBERS' RECOMMENDATIONS ONLY.

CAR PARKING
CAR PARKING

Only limited car parking can be allowed on the small Larkhill Centre car park due to the requirements for access for emergency vehicles.  I would urge members to use the large free public car park adjacent to the centre which from January 2016 has a 3 hour time limit with no return within the hour. There are some spaces for blue badge holders near to the path leading to the centre.  There are shortly to be parking restrictions on Thorley Lane itself but there is another free car park in the village behind the library which sometimes has spaces.

POINT TWO. WHEN CLAIMING PLEASE SHOW YOUR LINE OF PLAY WITHOUT RELEASING THE CARDS FROM YOUR HAND.

 NOT OBSERVING THESE GUIDELINES CAN SERIOUSLY AFFECT YOUR RESULT.

 

LARKHILL BRIDGE CLUB
LARKHILL BRIDGE CLUB

Started in May 2010 our intention is to encourage novice players and lapsed players to join more seasoned players in taking part in friendly, duplicate bridge. 

During the coming year the committee has already planned to feature several competitions and keep you informed of developments through our website, schedule of events and occasional newsletters. We also offer bridge holidays for our members and friends.

Membership is currently at capacity for play on Thursdays (members only)but we offer play at our Friday Club sessions to non members. There is a short waiting for Thursdays. If you do not bring a partner, we will do our best to assist but please arrive 15 minutes before commencement of play or use the 'Find a Partner' feature on the website. Visitors may attend our Friday sessions as posted on the website. Occasionally there is no Friday session due to bookings for the National Blood Transfusion Service.

We play every Thursday afternoon asking members to be seated by 12.45 for play to commence promptly at 12.50pm. Please see the 'Information' section for further details.

The Larkhill Centre is a modern venue, all on one floor and adjacent to the Thorley Lane free car park (3 hour time limit) and also has its own small car park which we respectfully ask you to leave for Blue Badge holders.
