Welcome to Church Stretton Bridge Club

All our meetings are suspended until further notice.  This web page will report all developments but it's unlikely we will meet for some weeks.

There's always on-line Bridge... an EBU briefing note on how to get into on-line Bridge is attached on our "News Page" (click on News Page and follow the EBU link).

If you're using the 'holiday' to learn more about Bridge (we can all benefit from this), please do e-mail me if you have any questions or want anything clarified.

For any further info. or if you need anything (help, advice, food deliveries, friendly chat, whatever) just e-mail  or call  01694 723 128 .

Playing Bridge on-line in the Shrewsbury area

On-line Update 1  For any of you who may be hankering after a game on-line, please see Monica and Mike's excellent initiative for those in the Shrewsbury area (i.e. anyone in Shropshire).  Full details are in the "On-line Bridge in Shrewsbury area" document posted on our News page:  see the menu on the left side of the home page screen - and click on the third tab down. 

On-line Update 2  Your county Bridge organisation is trying to set up an on-line Bridge club specifically to support learners and those with limited club experience.  See Judy Mitchell's memo on our News page (access as for update 1 above, look for the "No Fear Bridge Club on-lin" document).

Missing you all!  Dom

Memories of D Day ~ and The Legendary Tom

At our 15/2/18 meeting we celebrated the award by the French government of the Légion d'Honneur to Tom for the heroic efforts of his crew in the 1944 Normandy invasions.  Carolyn read the citation - in rousing French - and Tom responded with a very moving and emotional reminder of his late colleagues.  Later we celebrated in our traditional way, with a cake from Lynwen and champagne and chocolates.  Those looking down at our comfortable community, in a cosy English Village Hall, on a damp afternoon, might reflect that their sacrifice was both fruitful and very deeply appreciated.  Thank you, Tom and all those you represent.
