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.
