Three Windermere Club members make up the winning team. Well done John, Rob, Babs (and Ian).
The AGM proved to be a big success with Ray and his committee voted back in. Ten tables (along with sandwiches and savouries) saw Peter and Janice win, Dick and Susie second and Judy and Alan a close third. Averil and Kath won 'the percentage prize'. Onward to another successful year! Barbara and Mary Anne are here receiving the Peter Ford cup.
A new cup was presented at the AGM to Carl and Judy. The 'Monday Cup' is for the 5 best averages on a Monday, for players below the rank of Master.

Bridge players, and potential bridge players, are given many opportunities to learn and improve. The Monday bridge group is a friendly improvers session with a non playing Director available to 'stand in' if necessary. A short reminder is given at the start of the session and usually 18 boards are played. Tuesday night at Kendal is learners and improvers night with beginner and improver groups held in the Abbot Hall. Wednesday night at Windermere is for 'club' players to further develop and practise their skills. Friday night at Windermere is a popular competitive evening that offers an excellent opportunity for members to move their bridge on to the next stage in a friendly environment.
The Charity Bridge Afternoon Saturday 10th February was a great success. £671 was raised on the day and the Ambleside-Kirkstone Rotary Club made this up to £1.000 for the charity 'St John Hospice at Home'.
