Seminars

Westmorland's Second Bridge Seminar was another success with over forty attending. Many thanks to David Strawbridge, who gave us all something to think about. All profits from the session (£178) will be given to David's chosen charity, 'Compassion in World Farming' (CIWF).

John Ellwood will be running the third seminar which is on finessing. It will be on Sunday 10 December at AHSC starting at 10.30am and will cost £5 per person.
Please let
Chris Wilkinson know if you will be attending.
