Remembering Past Members - 2021

Stanley Woods swapped farming the Cumbrian fells for his favourite seat in the window of the downstairs playing room, where he could be found for many years playing multiple times a week until his health meant he had to move closer to his supportive family.  Stan passed away earlier this week after falling and spending a short period in hospital.  Our thoughts and sympathy go to his family and friends. 

Brian Dawson was a member of Bolton Bridge Club for many years and enjoyed playing duplicate, social and team events.  A good player who set himself high standards, Brian was always a worthy opponent.  Illness over recent years had limited his opportunities to play and he passed away earlier this week after a few days in hospital. Our thoughts and sympathy go to his family and friends.

John Kohorn enjoyed playing bridge regularly at Bolton for many years.  A gentlemen at the table, John was a good and competitve player who was always keen to understand how he could have played each hand better.  John's health had suffered over recent months and he passed away peacefully earlier this week.  Our thoughts and sympathy go to his family and friends.

Nancy Hill had been a regular player and supported of our Club over many years, before she moved to a care home more recently.  Our thoughts and sympathy go to her family and friends.

Peggy Gordon passed away in May, aged 90. Peggy had and her family have had long association with the Club, and Peggy was Secretary for many years.  Our thoughts and sympathy go to her family and friends.

Chris Maden who passed away peacefully in April  Chris was a regular player in our social bridge sessions with his gentle and polite manner.  He continued to play throughout his illness over recent months.  Our thoughts and sympathy go to Jean, and their family and friends. 

Happy New Year
