Membership Renewal and Gift Aid

THIS IS FOR EXISTING MEMBERS ONLY.  Visitors and online players will be contacted later

As you are aware County Bridge Club suspended collection of an annual membership fee for the last two years due to the forced closure of the Club premises. It is intended to reintroduce the annual membership fee at a figure of £20 with effect from 1st April 2022.  If you do not want to renew your membership, please contact Charles Gurr the Membership Secretary at

The club has been forced into becoming cashless through changes in banking and use the attendance module for Members to have personal accounts for all charges.  We also need to report that cheques are expensive to bank at 40p per item. So, if possible, the best payment options are by contactless card transaction or internet bank transfer to the Club account.

Gift Aid Declaration

As a registered charity we can claim back 25p for every £1 you pay in membership and on other donations to the club if you are a UK taxpayer and complete the gift aid declaration below.

Do you consent to County Bridge Club claiming Gift Aid on your subscription?     See the form below.

If YES I understand that County Bridge Club can treat my subscriptions as a donation and the following applies:

Please treat all donations that I made from 1st April 2019 and may make in the future as Gift Aid donations. I confirm that I have paid, or will pay an amount of Income Tax or Capital Gains Tax that is at least equal to the amount of tax that all charities or Community Amateur Sports Clubs (CASCs) that I donate to will reclaim on my gifts for that tax year. I understand that other taxes such as VAT and Council Tax do not qualify. I understand that the charity will reclaim 25p of tax on every £1 that I give.

Please notify County Bridge Club if you want to change the gift aid declaration, change your name or address or no longer pay sufficient tax on your income and/or capital gains.

Latest Covid Advice

At a committee meeting on 26 Feb 2022

A discussion took place about the clubs' next steps during the pandemic. All agreed that these should be in line with government guidance. With that in mind, the following measures will be in place from 1.4.2022

• No further temperature checks at the door

• A strong recommendation to be fully vaccinated when attending, but this will be a personal decision on the part of the attendee

• As a club, we will continue to provide the best ventilation possible, continue with social distancing whenever possible, cashless payments, hands free entrance and bathroom facilities, hand sanitisers remain, wearing masks encouraged and certainly no one to come if feeling unwell

• To continue to follow government guidance

• The club may need to adjust their recommendations depending on the changing situation. 

Procedures during the Covid-19 pandemic

We will continue making every effort to ensure safe bridge playing at St Oswald, including:

  • Best ventilation possible
  • Automaic doors
  • Hand sanitizer on each table
  • Optimum spacing of tables. We may use several rooms
  • Mitchell movement whenever possible
  • Table money. An invoice will be sent to you at the end of the month along with details of how to pay
  • Please keep any bags and coats that you bring to a minimum

We continue to advise:

  • Wearing of masks will be voluntary but is strongly recommended
  • Please remember you need to have had 2 Covid vaccinations. Please make a personal decision about attending if you have not received your booster
  • Anyone who is poorly must NOT attend. 
  • If you are alerted by NHS app of a close contact, again, please follow government guidance. Do NOT come to the club until you have the recommended negative tests

We will have heplers on hand to guide you through these if you need, so do not worry. We hope you enjoy the session.
