ENGLISH BRIDGE UNION

DIMMIE FLEMING AWARD

Congratulations to Glynn Elwick upon receiving the EBU's Dimmie Fleming Award for 2018


The intent of the Dimmie Fleming award is to publicly recognise those people who do not hold an official (i.e. EBU) office, but have, for a long time - usually over 15 years – worked hard for bridge in administration at County level. Board Directors, Vice Presidents, EBU employees and Panel Tournament Directors are excluded from nomination. However, after leaving office, such people are eligible for an award, if they too have worked hard for bridge at County level.

Phyllis Irene “Dimmie” Fleming, who died aged 85 in 1996, was for almost 20 years ‘Mrs Bridge’, running the English Bridge Union from her home, as secretary from 1955 to 1974. She was only the second woman to play in a British open team.
