Welcome Wrekin Bridge Club
Welcome Wrekin Bridge Club

Staffs and Shrops welcomes Wrekin Bridge Club. The club became affiliated to the EBU in May 2015 and is celebrating its 60th year this year.   The club started from humble beginnings in 1955 with a group of friends meeting in a local pub, and making the boards out of cardboard.  One of the founder members, Nellie Simpson, started the club with her husband Bert, and is still playing at Wrekin in 2015.  The club members were asked to join with a bridge club run at Sankeys Social Club and this venue continued until Sankeys closed its social club.  Wrekin moved to several different venues until it settled at its present venue some 15 years ago.  Wrekin is a small, friendly club which welcomes new members.  It meets on Wednesday evenings at 7.15 pm at Shawbirch Community Centre.  Visitors are welcome, and partners found.
