DINAH MAIRS

It is with great sadness that we have to report the death on 6th October 2016 of Dinah Mairs  one of the best known and best loved players in the county.

In his message to members Mark Goddard the chairman of Nottingham Bridge Cub refers to her many years of service to the club, including her time as secretary and Chairman. Her involvement was widespread and dedicated to everyone at the club. She was, Mark suggests, the embodiment of what the members want the club to be.
