No Fear Bridge 

♠   ♣ 

if you are someone who has recently started learning bridge and you would like the chance to play without time pressure and with  someone to ask if you need help, then you might like to play in our No Fear Sessions every Thursday Evening at 07.10pm.  There is no need to book, just turn up – there is a host so you can play without a partner.  These Thursday evenings are also suitable for anyone who prefers to play a relaxed game and everyone is most welcome.

The Peter Greenwood Memorial Trust Charity Event

A few months ago the club held a Charity Bridge event in aid of The Peter Greenwood Memorial Trust. An amazing £600 was raised by the members. 

The charity has since given bursaries totalling £3,600 to help seventeen hearing impaired students pursue their studies at various colleges and universities.

Grants went towards purchasing equipment such as laptops, books, i Pads, headphones and work clothing. We are pleased that our club has made a substantial contribution to these grants this year and send good wishes and lots of luck to all the students who received them.

It was Marion Brushett's 102nd birthday on February 15th and she came to the Club to celebrate and to meet up with her old friends here. We had a great time and it was really lovely to see her again.   Elaine and Margaret made some wonderful cakes which were much appreciated by all  and there were seven tables at the drive afterwards.   

We hope to see you again for your 103rd birthday next year Marion!
