Welcome to Brierfield Bridge Club
Bernard Swinson

We are sorry to hear of the death of Bernard Swinson, aged 81, who died on the 3rd July 2021 in Pendleside Hospice.

He joined the Club in 2011 partnering Doug Boyd with whom he won the Newcomers Trophy twice. He also won the Seeded Pairs Event with Brian Irlam.

He was a gentle and friendly man and it was sad not to see him at the Club in recent times.

Let us all please take time to remember him.

Cynthia Ramsey

We are sorry to hear of the death of Cynthia Ramsey, aged 86.
Cynthia had been in the Royal Blackburn Hospital for a short time and died there on Tuesday 27th July.
She had been a member of the Club for many years, a lovely lady who will be missed by all her friends.

Let us all please take time to remember her.
Her funeral is on Friday 20th August at Burnley Crematorium at 11.30am.

Laws and Ethics


Members will be pleased to know that the EBU has the power to suspend a member where they find sufficient evidence of unfair or dishonest play. Over recent months there have been several instances where it has been proved that online players have had knowledge of some aspects of each other’s hands obtained by illicit communication with each other. The disciplinary action taken has resulted in suspension of EBU membership for periods of up to 5 years.

There’s more information here.


New Member Applications

We have recently approved an application for membership.

You'll find details on the 'Information for Members' page in the Members Only section.
