Surrey County Council in conjunction with Southern Gas Networks have announced a closure of Molesey Road (between the Esher Road/Barley Mow roundabout and Hersham Place Technology Park) for gas mains replacement/repair works. The closure is expected to start on Bank Holiday Monday (!) and last for approximately 2 weeks.
Members travelling to the club from the north-east (eg East Molesey, Esher, etc.) will need to follow a diversion westbound along the Esher Road (passing Hersham Place Technology Park on the left), and then turn sharp left into Queens Road at the next roundabout (and the reverse when travelling home), adding roughly 5 minutes to your usual travel time.
Members who come through the centre of Walton-on-Thames should leave the one way system one turn later than usual at the Cobham B265 exit (Ashley Road) and then turn left into Queens Road after crossing the railway line (that's the 2nd roundabout on Ashley Road). Take the tiny 3rd exit at the next roundabout to stay on Queens Road into Hersham. This should make very little overall difference to your usual travel time.
The Walton & Hersham Bridge Club was originally formed by 'Mr Bridge', then taken over by Dennis Cook in 1989 and has since gone from strength to strength with over 250 members. In August 2006, Dennis handed over to Marietta Andree. And now in 2014, with Marietta's retirement, the club has been delivered into the capable hands of Steve Foster. The Club's motto is "Deal as you would be Dealt".
We meet on Tuesday & Thursday evenings at Hersham Centre, which is a bright modern building that can comfortably fit up to 23 tables. Please be punctual and take your seats by 7.25pm so that play can start at 7.30pm.
"Bridgemate IIs" are used so that results are updated as you play and hand copies for each session are available after play. We operate a host system, so a partner is always guaranteed. Free tea, coffee, soft drinks and water are available throughout the evening.
The club strives to provide friendly, relaxed evenings where players compete fairly with courtesy and good grace. We strongly support the "Best Behaviour at Bridge" programme sponsored by the EBU.
Please come and join us!
Play is scheduled to start at 7.30pm, so players should be seated by 7.25pm. Arriving late without warning is rude, and should be avoided if at all possible.
If you are delayed en-route to a session, please be sure to call and tell us so that we may reserve space for you in the movement (or inform your waiting partner), otherwise you risk a wasted journey.
