Welcome to Stirling and Union Bridge Club

We are very distressed to have to announce the sudden death of Leslie Cembler, who, at the age of 93, had been bridging for many years. He was a Past President of the Stirling Bridge Club and took part in all the activities of both Stirling and Falkirk Bridge Clubs right up to the week of his death. Funeral arrangements will be announced when known.

We are very sad to have to announce that Les Wilson died on 7th May after a long illness. As you are all aware, Les and Pat together contributed an enormous amount to the club in terms of teaching, organising and general running of events and he will be very much missed. Funeral arrangements are: Monday, 20th May, at 12.15pm at Falkirk Crematorium. 

The Annual General Meeting will be held in the club rooms on Thursday, 23rd May, at 6.45 for 7pm.  Lists for election will be posted on the notice board shortly and any member interested in the running of the club should consider putting him/herself forward with a seconder who is also a member.

Building Development

The board have established a sub-committee to investigate the possible development and refurbishment of the rear premises of the bridge club. An initial appraisal document has been placed in the building development section in the main menu. Further information will be added.

Friday Afternoon Sessions

As attendances have been very low and also we are now in to the coldest part of the year, it has been decided to cancel these sessions at least until the Spring.

Saturday Evening Bridge

It is with great regret that we admit defeat. There simply has not been enough support to keep this event running. For the foreseeable future, Saturday Evening bridge is cancelled.  

Lessons for Beginners

Lessons for beginners will start on Tuesday 2nd  October 2018 at  7pm.  Anyone interested please contact Jim Glancy (07483855487) or Ronan Valentine (07549581453) for more information.
