A reminder...

If you register for a session, and do not get included when the session starts (ie you are booted), please always chat DarrenE and LizGahan (the TDs), because if there is a half table we can add you back in. 

We cannot, however, add you back in if there is no half table.  Sorry!

A message from Darren - The path from Lockdown: more...


If you are affected by a connection issue, then you are expected to return.

If your partner is affected, you are expected to remain at the table until the TD confirms you may withdraw.  Thank you.  

Can you help...

as a substitute in our events? 
If so, please chat DarrenE & LizGahan when logged in. Thank you!

In 2020 we raised £1650, in 2021 we raised £1000, in 2022 it was £1155, so a total of £3805 for Children in Need - Thank you!

OR simply make a payment to the Circle (click here) with the payment description of CiN - PLEASE do not make a donation of £5.00
or it will be tricky differentiating it from membership payments (you are not all good at getting the payment description right...wink).  Any other amount will stand out. Thank you!


On the evening, search for the event WMBCircle - CiN

 The Circle will make a donation of £2 per player that plays in all its sessions during the period 6 - 10 November 2023, so even if you cannot play in the evening, you will be contributing by just playing in the afternoon  

If you are not a member of the Circle, but would like to support Children in Need and play in these sessions, please complete the CiN temporary membership
(6-10 November 2023) form below and you will be added to our list for that period and welcome to play in any session during that time (two sessions per day Mon-Fri & Sat/Sun afternoons).
