REMEMBERING MEMBERS - 2020

We remember a number of our members who sadly passed away this year. Our condolsences and thoughts go out to their family and friends:

Dr Nilratan Ghosh enjoyed playing bridge, and was a regular afternoon attendee at Bolton Bridge Club before he passed away in the Hospice in early May.  

John Ashworth had been a member of Bolton Bridge Club for a large number of years before he passed away in hospital on Sunday 24th May.  He will be remembered as a keen and experienced player, a Committee Member, Tournament Director, keen opponent and bridge partner. Committed to competitive play he was always willing to play in league matches, team events, competitions of any kind whether at the club or outside events and he actively encouraged other members to take part as well, often acting as chauffeur for away events.

Special Message  I would like to thank so many of John's friends from the bridge club for the cards and letters of condolence which I received during this sad time.   He was a wonderful, unassuming gentleman, loved by lots.   Catherine Ashworth

Ken Brookes will be known to  many who play on Thursday afternoons as a gentle, quiet and polite man, and regular attendee at the Club.  In recent times Ken has suffered with a heart condition and hadn't been in the best of health before his untimely passing away this month.
