I am sad to inform members of the death of Joyce Goldstone. She was a tutor here for several years and a great supporter of Manchester Bridge Club. Her husband Merville was chairman of MBC and a member of MCBA for a considerable time and the Goldstone Trophy is still keenly competed for annually.
She will be sadly missed and we send condolences to her family and friends.
The funeral was held on TUESDAY 6th NOVEMBER, at the Jewish Cemetary in Failsworth - 12.30pm

Autumn is the busiest time of year for bridge lessons, and this month many have started around the country at bridge clubs, and with independent teachers.
In a humorous column for the Sunday Times, Jeremy Clarkson has written about his recent attempts to learn to play to bridge - with varying degrees of success, confusion, and inebriation.
