Elizabeth Nam

It is with great regret and sadness that we have to inform you of the untimely passing of dear Elizabeth Nam following a short illness. She lit up any room and will be greatly missed. Our sincerest condolences to Arthur and to Elizabeth's family.

Following a private family cremation on Monday, 26th September, there will be a memorial service for Elizabeth on Tuesday, 27th September, starting at 11am, in Cyncoed Methodist Church, Cyncoed Road/Westminster Crescent, CF23 6SE. The service will be followed about midday by refreshments in the Westminster Hall of the Church.

In preference to floral tributes, Elizabeth requested donations to the Cardiff City Hospice charity, who looked after her with care and tenderness in her final days. To that end, Arthur's  daughter, Libby Watson, has set up a 'Just Giving' page which you can access by clicking on:   Just Giving

Or, if you prefer, there will be a City Hospice collection tin located in the Westminster room following the Memorial service.

Congratulations Dan!

The bridge section congratulates bowler Dan Salmon for his amazing achievement in winning two consecutive Commonwealth Gold medals at the 2018 (Australia) and 2022  (Birmingham) games. A Celebration Evening will be held on Saturday September 24th at 7.00pm. Please come along and make it a Club night to remember.

East Wales Bridge Association

More information on the following EWBA events are available on the EWBA website HERE

Western League Bridge: Come and try it: The Western League is made up of 8 counties, Avon, Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, Herefordshire, Somerset, Wiltshire and East Wales. We play 7 matches, roughly once a month from September to April. We play online on Realbridge on a Saturday from 2pm-5.30pm, playing 24 boards. It is a friendly and enjoyable way of spending a Saturday afternoon and whilst reasonably competitive, offers a good start for regular club players if they haven’t experienced team competition before. You can earn green points or parts of green points for each match you win. See the EWBA website for more details.
