Club Walk

  The next club walk will take place on Tuesday, 2 May 2017 at 10.30am.

Led by Chris Penny, the walk will be about four miles long and will include a few easy stiles and short inclines - all good fun! It will start at finish at the car park of St Nicholas Church, Church Road, Codsall, WV8 1EH. Members will be asked to contribute £1 for car parking as a contribution to the church. As usual, following the walk, we will seek lunch in a local pub.

Eight weeks of road works on A449

  Extensive work to reconstruct and resurface the A449, Stafford Road, will start on Monday, 13 March, 2017 and is expected to last eight weeks. The road will be shut to through traffic for more than a mile, between Gorsebrook Road island and Oxley Moor Road,  in phased sections.  Work will take place overnight, between 7pm and 5am on week nights only. Unfortunately, this work will cause some disruption in travel arrangements for nearly all our members. Therefore all members are asked to pre-plan alternative routes to the club or to allow extra time for their travel.

Car Parking
Car Parking

 Members are reminded to take care when parking their cars and to ensure that the road leading to Angel premises is left clear. This is particularly important for the afternoon sessions when the car park does get very busy.

Interested in learning Bridge ?

The club's annual course for beginners started in September 2016. The course, follows EBU guidance and is led by Val Lupton. It comprises taught sessions and supervised play.  It will run for a year on Thursday evenings. The cost is £6 per session. We welcome players of all ages. Anyone interested in joining the course, should contact Linda Curtis, Club Captain, tel 01902 765027, or Val Lupton, tel 01922 419190.

Some Gentle Reminders......

1. To help the ‘duplimates’, who generate the sets of boards each week, it would be much appreciated if all players would note the following:

  • Please don’t eat at the table
  • Try not to bend the cards as you play them
  • Handle the cards and boards sympathetically to avoid damaging the card edges

2.​Will all members please ensure that the door is locked before the start of each session and that no valuables are left in coats hung in the hallway?

3.We are keen to ensure that we remain a friendly club. Please click here to find the EBU code for best behaviour at the bridge table.
