Directors needed please!

The Club is in urgent need of more Directors. We are not asking anyone to go on a Directors course but anyone who could facilitate a duplicate session with enough basic knowledge on rules and the various movements. Please let yourself be known! Thank you.

Club Presidents

 

Bolton Bridge Club was formed in 1946, the first President being Dr R. S. Davidson. It was incorporated as The Bolton Bridge Club Limited in April 1952.

The first Committee of The Bolton Bridge Club Limited comprised Alfred Glaister (President), Thomas Gee (Immediate Past President), Thomas Hope Parker (Hon. Treasurer), John Ormerod (Hon. Secretary), Franklin Farrington (Hon. Tournament Director), Cyril Morris (Hon. Solicitor), Miss Nellie Fletcher, Miss Margaret Glaister, Herbert Grundy, Mrs Grace Harrison, Thomas Mason, Dr Percy Michael Overton, and James Stanley Williamson. Several of these would later serve terms as President: Cyril Morris (1954-55), Tom Mason (1959-61), Bert Grundy (1964-65) and John Ormerod (1966-67).
