Marrakech winter break 2015

We are currently working with 2001 Travel Limited to assemble a package for a short break in Morocco in November 2015. Before we do the research we need to know the potential response to the offer. We believe we can provide a 5 day mini-break for around £500 per person based on two people sharing a double room. Single rooms will be available at a £60 supplement. It may be possible for individuals to extend their time at the resort, but that will need to be discussed between the individuals and the travel providers. Clicking on this article will take you to a link that describes the package on offer.  If you are interested, please e-mail to the address shown on the link to register your interest. People who register an interest will be given further details if the overall package becomes viable. Please contact me no later than the end of November 2014 if this offer interests you.

Bournemouth Bridge Weekend 2015

The Hotel has been reserved for the weekend 27 to 30 March 2015 and we are now taking orders for our third Bridge short break in Bournemouth. The basic cost will be £190 per person for 3 nights dinner, bed, breakfast and 5 sessions of bridge all scored by Bridgepads for instant results. Sessions will last no longer than 3 hours.  Sea view rooms are available for a supplementary payment of £45 per room. For those who have not attended an event previously, we intend it to be sociable and relaxing. Our previous weekends have always been enjoyed and we hope to build on our past experiences to make this a particularly special event. Anyone interested in joining us for the weekend can gain further details by contacting me by email at or mailing the website. Click on the box "Regis in Bournemouth"  on our home page for a link to our 2014 weekend which gives a flavour of the event.

Past experience has shown that places go fast for this event. You need to supply a deposit of £40 per person to secure your booking which should be sent to me no later than 15 August 2014. 


Annual Barbeque

The annual barbeque took place on 8 July 2014. 40 members attended the event. The Chairman gave a short address explaining this year's event was celebrating 30 years of the Regis Bridge Club and paying tribute to the Club's founder, Peter Pratt.The Club has grown from 8 people meeting in his living room once a week to the current situation of over 80 members and the best attended Club in Bedfordshire.Peter turns 80 shortly and the members joined enthusiastically in 3 cheers for him. He replied by thanking all for their support. The barbeque itself was compromised by a torrential rainstorm but the caterers did their best and the food was of a high standard. 

The food was followed by 16 hands of bridge in an individual tournament. Individual prizes were won by Bryan Power, Sheila Kempster, Roger Gregory and Peggy Pickup. Thank you to all who supported the evening.

Welcome to Regis Bridge Club

"Regis Bridge Club" is the principal duplicate bridge club in Dunstable, So named from when it first opened in "Houghton Regis", a small town on the outskirts of Dunstable, Bedfordshire. The Club has invested in Bridge Pads and can provide a result on the night immediately after completion of the last board played.

Although not currently affiliated to the EBU, duplicate evenings follow the rules laid down by the governing body. You can be assured of a competitive but friendly evening playing duplicate bridge.

Annual General Meeting 2014

The Annual General Meeting was held on Tuesday 15 April with 56 members attending. The Chairman discussed his report which had previously been circulated via this website and which was accompanied at the meeting by a one page key summary document. The Treasurer and Secretary reports followed. Financially, the Club is in a secure position despite rent increases and other administrative costs over the year. The existing officials all agreed to serve another year and were re-elected en bloc. The meeting unanimously supported a motion by Sylvia Miller calling for a ban on the consumption of greasy or noisy snacks whilst a session is in progress.
