MALCOLM MITCHELL

It is with great sadness we report the death on Thursday 10 July of Malcolm Mitchell after an extended period of illness

Malcolm did much to extend the playing of bridge in the Maidstone area particularly with his development of successful afternoon clubs and also evening clubs where he thought greater emphasis on beginners needed to be made. Although criticised by the "bridge establishment" for competing against existing clubs and his failure to promote KCBA and EBU events he was well respected and indeed he played in many county and national competitions in his earlier years. Funeral arrangements are awaited.
