LCBA Executive Committee

The Lancashire Contract Bridge Association is currently run with the intention of promoting bridge in Lancashire and in organising county and other competitions for its members.

At present there are eight members - chairperson, secretary, treasurer, vice chairperson, tournament secretary, membership secretary, education secretary and IT member/chairperson of selectors.

During recent times the committee has been reduced because of deaths and resignations due to other commitments.

The executive is wanting to appoint four other people who are willing to assist the present members in the successful organisation of the Association.

Unless an emergency EGM is required it is not expected that there will be more than six meetings per annum. Recent meetings have been held by zoom.

If you feel that you are able to help or require any further information then please do not hesitate to contact Brian Irlam.

Brierfield Bridge Club Passes Covid Safety Audit

The Club was selected in March for a 'spot check' by the Health and Safety Executive who are acting on a government initiative to help prevent the spread of Covid.

The audit checks that the club has a detailed knowledge of transmission and contamination risks. It also checks that we have completed a written risk assessment, and a methodology statement covering the practical measures we have taken.

Details of social distancing, cleaning and ventilation were discussed and they were particularly impressed by our ventilation system which exchanges air up to 10 times per hour.

 We are pleased to report that measures taken at the club were deemed excellent.
