We did the walk from Hailsham to Sovereign Harbour back in January, hence the overcoats. The game itself was on Tuesday September 11th when we were met with a splendid buffet.
Sovereign Harbour is a cracking place to play bridge with views over the water, brilliantly run by Hilary & Robin Levett.
Winners of the event were Kathleen and Roy and the runners-up were John & Harry. The members raised an excellent £130.
From Sovereign Harbour we walked about 3 miles to the Eastbourne Club where we were quite stunned to receive cheques for £500 from their chairman Crombie McNeill, a tremendous gesture, which was increased by a further collection from the members to an absolutely amazing £711.50.
Winners on the night were Roger Poulter & David Walker with Albert Armstrong & Glenda Pelling. See results.

For reports of previous walks, see below and the Link Walks page.
With four clubs to choose from, Bexhill is the place to be for a game or two of Bridge.
We started Legs 21-24 at the Wilton club before walking all of 350 yards to East Sussex Bridge Club who play at Cooden Beach Tennis & Squash Club. We were met there by the proprietor Barbara Herold who expertly runs the club and provided us with lovely tea & cakes. The winners were Patrick Hutley & Josie Boryn and the members donated a fantastic £124. See results.
On then to Bexhill Bridge Club, stopping first for a quick photo at KIBBridge. KIBBridge are an affiliated teaching club run by mother & son combination Katie & Stephen Kennedy. Stephen interrupted his online match against Israel for a photo.
At Bexhill Bridge Club we were greeted with a buffet with wine, which might be the reason why my photo of deserved winners Shirley Bodle, Pauline Stephenson, Julia Gayton and Claire Weston is blurred! Including a contribution from the club, the sum of £162.18 was raised for Alzheimer's Research UK & Youth Bridge in Sussex. See results.
See more pictures. Thanks to all the fantastic people we met.
Leg 20 was a shortish six-mile walk along the seafront from Worthing Bridge Club to the Church of the Good Shepherd in Shoreham Beach. We were joined by David Park & Mary Lawrenson for this walk so we were five.
Winners were Shirley Price and Howard Da Vall 62.22% and the amount raised was £100. Many thanks to all at Shoreham Beach who made us feel extremely welcome.
Well done to Gerry Stanford and Dave Franklin who, fresh from their joint-win in the Midweek Swiss Pairs, ventured to Le Touquet where they finished 6th overall and won the 'highest-placed non-French pair' trophy in a 3-session event over the weekend of September 1st/2nd.
Every year, the SCCBA runs a simultaneous pairs event in support of two selected charities. The association is keen to support local charities if possible. Since 2002, thirty-four charities have been supported. If your club would like to nominate a charity for consideration in 2019 or subsequent years, please send me full details along with a short statement indicating why you believe that particular charity deserves our support. Proposals will be considered by the county management committee on November 30th 2018.
