Lessons for beginners and coaching for improvers are normally held on Wednesday afternoons at 1.30 pm. Everyone welcome, no partner required, cost £2 including drinks and biscuits.
Regrettably the lessons are not taking place for the time being. We hope to resume them at some point in the spring, but have no definite dates in place as yet.
Contact Joan Lewis 07952 010716 or any committee member for further information.
Members will be aware of how much work goes on both visibly and behind the scenes to ensure smooth operation of the club - in numerous areas such as directing, dealing, refreshments and finance - to name just a few.
An area where more help would be welcome is in members volunteering to host occasionally on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
The hosting system has been well used since its inception over a year ago and many members have benefited and formed new friendships and bridge partnerships through its use.
However there is a risk that we may not be able to continue if more members don't come forward and volunteer to take on the role of host. So - if you play regularly and don't make a contribution to the running of the club in any other way - then please consider hosting every few months - even if you have no intention of using it yourself.
Don't be afraid of doing so, we encourage hosts and hosted to agree simple systems to play on the night and to adopt a "no blame approach"!!
Please simply identify a date when you are free and put your name on the list on the noticeboard.
If you'd like to discuss the way this operates then please speak to any committee member.
