Long-time member of Phillip Island Bridge Club, Trish Stewart-Uden, celebrated her 70th birthday recently. Trish, centre of picture, shared her milestone birthday with members of the bridge club.
Beryl Chilcott was a well known and much-loved resident of San Remo. She could be frequently spotted zooming around town on her mobility scooter with her beloved dog Star in tow. She was a remarkable and inspirational woman who always looked for the good in people. She detested bad manners and bad grammar !
Beryl was fiercely intelligent. She attended MacRobertson's girls' school and won senior dux of the school. She was awarded a prestigious scholarship to Melbourne University in the days when scholarships were a rarity and highly prized. Sadly, her parents insisted that she decline the scholarship and seek employment. She went to work for a large insurance company and with mathematics being one of her special gifts she became a systems analyst in the formative years of computers.
Having a daily $1.00 bet on the horses with her brother, Dicky, was one of her pleasures. She was also known to enjoy a tipple or two. She was an avid reader and loved poetry. Another passion was playing bridge and with her strong mathematical and analytical skills she was a natural - and a fierce opponent.
Beryl was a founding member of Phillip Island Bridge Club and in addition to playing club events she started a Thursday afternoon group where novice players could practice their game in a relaxed environment with the support of more experienced players. Play always kicked off with a glass of "bubbles".
Several people are committed to continuing "Thursdays with Beryl" in the spirit of her joy of socialising and her love of bridge. Play commences at 2pm each Thursday and if you are interested in learning bridge or just want to hone your game, come along and join us and help keep Beryl's legacy alive. For more information contact Wendy on 0459200265.
