Arden Christmas Card Collection

Our Christmas collection for Solihull Seals raised 198. Many thanks to all who contributed.


Annual Subscriptions and Table Money are set as detailed below:

Annual Subscriptions of 10 are due from September 1st 2022.

The institute has increased the rates it charges for room rental and has applied a surcharge of 6 per hour to cover increased energy costs. To help defray some of the increased charges we have decided increase table money as listed below. This will not cover all the increase but we are hoping that when the capping scheme for business is confirmed the surcharge will be reduced. As the club is currently running at a loss it is hoped that this increase will go some way towards rectifying this.

Table money for Monday afternoon events is 2.50 per person for members increasing to 3.50 for non members.

Table money for Tuesday and Thursday evening events is 3.50 for members and 4.50 for non members.

These revised rates will be applied from October 1st and all the charges will be reviewed in January.


Tuesday evening bridge sessions have restarted. If you think that you would like to play either regularly or semi regularly then please let us know via the email link below and indicate if you have a regular partner. We will not be offering a hosting service initially but if you wish to play and do not have a regular partner please let us know and we will attempt to pair players up and hope that these pairings will become a regular partnership. By contacting us it will help us to assess if we have sufficient numbers to make Tuesdays a regular event.

Additionally we have decided to drop the requirement for all to play simple systems as we hope this will widen the scope of the sessions appeal but we will require players to make a full explanation of their bidding and to alert where necessary. We expect that many pairs will still wish to play simple systems and we will look at including more handicapped events that will reflect the relative experience of players.

Please let us know if you will be joining us or any of your thoughts or suggestions by replying to us at:

Thank you

ALERT - COVID 19 Update

I accordance with latest government guidance MASKS will no longer be required from Thursday 27th January when moving around the institute and when playing at the tables but will remain a personal preference.
