Welcome to Blackburn & Ribble Valley Bridge Club


The club is very sad to announce the death of John Wilson on Monday 17th January.

John was a long-standing member of the club and served as Chairman for six years following the club's major move to the Showroom in 2000. 

He was also still a serving Trustee.

Many members have been inspired by his considerable expertise and unbounded enthusiasm for bridge and have benefitted from his teaching sessions and from his advice in club games.

He represented the club regularly in the Fylde League for many years and featured on the honours boards for many of the club's competitions.

More recently many members have been grateful to John for helping them to continue enjoying the game online when lockdown prevented face to face bridge.

We send our sincere condolences to his family and friends.

He will be sadly missed by all.


Annual General Meeting 2022


The AGM will be held on Monday 24th January at 12.30p.m. at Northern unless further government restrictions prevent face to face meetings.

There will be a free session of bridge afterwards, time permitting.

All members welcome.
