The county management committee has worked on understanding the requirements over recent months and has recently approved the publication of a comprehensive Privacy Notice.
Hopefully, this will provide the necessary visibility to Members regarding current arrangements but if there are any queries about this, Members should contact the Membership Secretary (Joy Mayall), copied to the Hon Secretary (Dick Wheeler).

The Gladys Hakki Trophy is awarded annually to a Sussex member who has given outstanding service to county and club over a number of years. This year's very deserving winner is Gerry Stanford, pictured being presented with the trophy by SCCBA President Martin Pool at the aborted SCCBA AGM on April 29th.
Not only has Gerry given consistently excellent performances representing the county over very many years but has worked tirelessly to help the SCCBA to deliver its objectives, e.g. as Vice-Chairman, Tournament Manager, organiser of several county events and Editor of the annual county Year Book
More recently Gerry has also played a key part in the development of youth bridge across the county, teaching at several schools and colleges and being a member of the project teams for several youth bridge festivals.
