Welcome to Bromley North Bridge Club
Ivan Collins
Ivan Collins

It is with great sadness that I have to advise that Ivan Collins passed away on the morning of Thursday 11 June. He died of a heart attack and this was very unexpected as he played golf and bridge the previous day.

Ivan was a founder member of Bromley North Bridge Club and worked hard for the club over the years. He was, for many years, a loyal and supportive Friend of The Princess Royal Hospital.

Sadly there is only allowed to be a small family funeral which will be on the 8th July at 11.45 am and the family have decided not to have the service webcast live.

If anyone would like to make a donation to St. Christopher’s Hospice, cheques to be sent to J & R Killick Ltd, 112 High Street, West Wickham, BR4 OND. 
 
Elaine would like to thank the club members for the lovely cards of sympathy which she has received and said it is a great comfort to know that Ivan was so well thought of.
 
Our thoughts and sympathies go to Elaine and his family for their loss.
Members Help

Some of our members have volunteered to be available to help other members in any way they can, either practically or just to be a friend to talk to.

In order to find these contact details you can either:

1) logon on to the members area (lefthand menu option Members Pages/logon) - click on the Messages tab to see a message from me with members' contact details

2) send an email to the club email bnbc@bromleynorthbc.co.uk asking for the details to be emailed to you

If any of you would like to be added to the list of volunteers, please send an email to the club email address.

About Bromley North Bridge Club

Host Duty

Just a reminder to all of what is expected when you are on host duty at the club:

  • Please arrive by 7:15 at the latest, report to the director and wait at the bar.
  • The Director will then pair you with any player who does not have a partner and a table will be found. Should two players need partners they will play together and the Host will leave.
  • If the Host's regular partner comes he/she should also wait at the until the Director has paired up the players.  If there are an odd number of members arriving without a partner then he/she will be paired up accordingly.
  • If the host needs to go home without a game, they will get a free evening the next time they come to the club.

We are trying out a new way for members to find a partner. As soon as you know you will need a partner, email iancotton@ymail.com with your contact details and Ian will contact you to let you know which other members are looking for a partner. You must do this by 4pm at the latest on the day that you want to play. There will still be a host at the club (except on competition evenings, see calendar).

Alternatively, you can put a partner request on the calendar and email other members via the website. For more information click here.

In accordance with current restrictions, play at the club is suspended until further notice.  We run online duplicate sessions every Monday.
