In Memory of Letty Browning

1934 - 2016

It is with sadness that we report that Letty died on Friday 22nd April after a long illness. Letty was a long-standing member of the club, always fun to play with or against. Our condolences go to Mac, to Letty's family, and to her many friends.

Letty's funeral will be at the new Waveney Memorial Park and Crematorium at Ellough (NR34 7XE)  on Thursday 12th May at 10 am, and afterwards at Carlton Manor. Family flowers only, but donations may be made to the Alzheimer's Society at https://www.alzheimers.org.uk/donate .

For directions to the Crematorium see http://www.waveneymemorial.co.uk/contact-waveney-crematorium/find-us/ .

Welcome

Welcome to the home page of the most easterly Bridge Club in Great Britain.

We play duplicate bridge twice a week, on Mondays and Thursdays, with a mixture of open pairs, teams, and individual competitions. We also take part in national simultaneous pairs competitions when these take place on a suitable day. We welcome visitors to all but individual and teams competitions, and more information is available from the secretary

Points to be considered at the AGM

The Thursday evening club session:

As we all know, numbers are dwindling and this session is consistently losing money. There are two choices and the members are requested to make their views known at the AGM.

1. Increase the table money to around £3 on Thursday evening only.
2. Cancel the Thursday session.

Should the club start an afternoon session?

This to be either instead of, or in addition to, Thursday evening. This session hopefully would include playing bridge and beginners lessons.
Wednesday or Thursday afternoons would probably be the best choice. At present Bloodmoor Community Hall is available for both these times, but other venues could be
considered.

Your views are important, if you have any questions please consult a committee member.

Waddington Goblet

Congratulations to Alec Hillier, winner of the Waddington Goblet with a score of 58.75%.

Trophy Return

Trophies should be returned to Richard Duckett as soon as possible after Easter, so that they can be engraved in time for the AGM.

Phone Scams and Phishing Emails

This has nothing to do with bridge, but you may find it useful. "These days people are frequently asked for personal details, either via a phishing email or, to our intense irritation, by telephone cold callers. Everyone should be on their guard that they only give information when absolutely necessary, and when they trust the person/organisation they are talking to. With this in mind the Metropolitan Police and NatWest Bank have jointly produced a booklet called "The Little Book of Big Scams", which can be downloaded free at bit.ly/1acfow6 ".
