Message from Judi Kemp

The morning beginners class have just completed their final lesson of the year. Congratulations to all of you who have finished the course. We have had lots of fun learning and for some revising the basics and I wish you all success in developing your skills further.

This was my last class teaching at Wallingford Bridge Club before I head up North, and I have thoroughly enjoyed the last two years of teaching beginners, and running the supervised play session. Thank you to my colleagues Francis Glassborow and Patricia Hones for all their support.
