This is the last Sunday event of the season and is a friendly and popular event open to players of all levels.

Katharine has just returned from London where she received her Dimmie Fleming Award.
In her own words....
I had a very memorable day last Wednesday when Silverio and I travelled to London and I received the Dimmie Fleming award at the EBU AGM. It was lovely to have an official recognition of my time on the WCBA committee when I helped, along with many others, to organise the hobby that has given me so much enjoyment over the years. Thank you to everyone in Wiltshire who supported the nomination for my award – it was an honour to receive it.
