Proposed NCBA County Bridge Centre

The NCBA is  thinking about the long term future of bridge playing and teaching in Norfolk, and moves are afoot for there to be a County Bridge Centre with its own dedicated premises, and for an application to be made to the Charities Commission for registration as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation. The Prospectus for the development of a County Bridge Centre for NCBA and Initial Business Plan to support the development of a County Bridge Centre for NCBA are now available, and can be read using the links on the side menu.

Paul Bridle Donations

On the Order of Service for Paul's funeral there was a message from Paul's family: We do not believe that Paul would have liked flowers for the funeral, but if you would like to show your respects, donations can be made to Paul's favourite charity the WWF at www.justgiving.com/Paul-Bridle

Our Diamond Anniversary

There has been much debate amongst members with long memories about the starting date of Lowestoft Bridge Club - the favoured date being sometime in the mid-sixties. After a bit of research at Lowestoft Record Office, trawling through microfilms of old Lowestoft Journals, we have discovered that we are older than any of us thought. The opening meeting of the club was held on Friday 30th September 1955, at 7 pm, at 160, London Road South. Robert remembers this to be a cafe, owned by Bill Burwood and his wife Vera, called "Vera Porter's".

We shall be celebrating our 60th anniversary on Monday 28th September with a special evening.

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 ".
