New Year Swiss Teams and Walk Linking Sussex Bridge Clubs
New Year Swiss Teams and Walk Linking Sussex Bridge Clubs

The winners of the 2018 New Year Swiss Teams at Henfield on Sunday January 14th were Richard Fedrick, Peter Clinch, Liz Hoskins and Andrew Southwell (pictured with director David Galpin) who won six matches and drew their other one, finishing 9 IMPs ahead of .....

..... charity-walkers (see below) Lord Richard Newton, Matthew Smith, Andy Ryder and Mike Allen who were not too tired to finish in the runners-up position!

Lord Newton presented a trophy to the winners of the Non-Expert Prize who were Tomasz Serkowski, Jim Downes, Josie Allen and Francis Kelly.

The Ascender's Prize went to Helen Kent, Mervyn Wotton, Hazel Ogden and Wendy Keech.

An added bonus to the day was the arrival of intrepid bridge charity walkers Andy Ryder, Matt Smith, Sharon, and Lord Richard Newton (pictured minus fellow-walker Mike Allen) who had walked from Shoreham to Henfield to raise funds for Sussex Juniors and the Alzheimers Society.  NYST players kindly donated over £335 to the charity fund!  Further pictures are available on the facebook page SCCBA linkwalk.

A delicious hot supper was served by the new caterers.   Many thanks to director David Galpin, scorer Ron Robins and to Peter Bates who was an invaluable gofer.
