Bruton Weekend
  • Bruton1

  • Bruton4
  • Bruton5

Another great weekend at Bruton with Caroline and her colleagues, Jean and Daphne. They do a brilliant job of keeping us learning, playing and having fun. It doesn't matter what level you are there is always something to learn and discuss. Between the bridge sessions there was excellent food and wine along with copious cups of coffee, tea and biscuits. We even played some table tennis in the kitchen where we met for chats at the end of the day. If you haven't been yet give it a go next year!

If so please don’t hold back and get in touch for a discussion if nothing else. 

There has been no response to this. If you enjoy facebook please give this some thought - it would be a great help.
