Welcome to Chichester Bridge Club
Angela Fisher

Sadly, Angela Fisher has died following a long illness. Her funeral will take place at Chichester Crematorium on 25th April at 1.30 pm.

Angie was a well-known, much liked and long-standing member of the club. Unfortunately, due to increasing immobility over the last few years, Angie has not been able to play at the club, so she is probably not known to the more recent club members. We send our condolences to her family and friends.

What's New?


The Chichester team of Peter Burns, David Telfer, Chris Phillips, and Andy Morris won a close match in the EBU National Inter Club KO (NICKO) plate against Abingdon Duplicate Bridge Club A, and are now in the last 16 teams. Our other team in this competition will be playing their round of 32 match later this month.

A message from our new Chairman: Helen Yoward

Thank you for electing me as Chairman at the AGM, I am honoured and slightly daunted to be taking over following Julie’s excellent leadership!
My name is Helen Yoward. I joined the club 5 years ago as a student with Thea and have been Membership Secretary with the committee for the last 2 years, I also assist with teaching on a Wednesday evening.
I may not be the best player and am still learning as we all constantly do; however, I am very enthusiastic, love the game of bridge and am keen to promote friendly and relaxed, and competitive play! I play regularly with several partners at all club sessions except for Thursdays, which we originally perceived as way above our level, however, we have played recently and were made very welcome by everyone we played alongside. I do encourage anyone who is able to play on Thursday evenings to come along - the more the merrier for sure!
The previous committee members were all re-elected along with Keith Morgan which means that we have a very experienced committee of 8 moving forward. I would like to extend a thank you to Julie who has been a fantastic role model as Chairman. I hope to continue with the same warm and friendly ethos that Julie has demonstrated for the last 20 years. I know I will be well supported by my fellow committee members, directors, supervisors and teachers. I am also grateful to the many other club members who work quietly behind the scenes to ensure the smooth running of the club and I feel strongly that Chichester Bridge Club has a very positive future ahead.
As always, if anyone has any suggestions or comments, or would like to volunteer with the running of the club, please do not hesitate to speak to any of the committee, or contact me in person at the club or on
Thank you everyone for making the club as successful as it is, and I look forward to getting to know everyone better as we move forward.
With kind regards and best wishes to all,
