Internal alterations to the village hall : UPDATE

As many of you will have seen  the changes to the layout of the hall by merging the current 2 small rooms into one to provide  both more room and more flexible space  are well advanced.   However  the removal of the old stud walls revealed the need for some additional works to be done  which means the new room will continue to be out of use probably until Thursday 4 September meaning  all 3 September  Wednesday evening Sections will need to be accomodated in the main hall.

The other works being done -  building a new secure cupboard where we keep laptop computer, the dealing  machine  etc;   to provide more space for the boards  and to provide lockable sliding doors for them; repairing the six ceiling panels in the main hall; and repairing  the rear fire exit door  started today and  are on schedule to  complete  by Wednesday 3 September.  Next week further electrical works will take place to improve the lighting in the new room.  Additional  bulbs will also be installed in some of the tracks in the main hall.

We are also buying a moveable  accoustic room divider to  create flexible space for classes and other events  whether in the main hall or new room. This will be arrive in time for the start of the new teaching term.

FRIENDLY TEAMS

Whilst most club nights are duplicate pairs  your club has a strong teams component.  A teams event is held monthly on Friday evenings.  We have teams in many competitions including the Wessex and Chiltern leagues and  consistently achieve good to excellent results.

We are keen to encourage more  of the club's players to take part in teams  and to this end  are looking  to start up a friendly teams regular event, both for new teams players and those with a little (or even a lot) of experience who would like  to share that experience with new players.   If you would like to take part please Click here   to email Brenda Edwards

Next Thursday 4 September  Debbie Roberts is running a session on teams at 19:30 in the Club.  Anyone who wishes to attend please  turn up for what is always a lively and friendly session.

AND do not forget our annual  charity event - the PEAD PLATE - is also a teams event.  This year it is on 12 September.   Please enter this event to help support  a local charity.
