Welcome to Collier Row
COLLIER ROW BRIDGE CLUB IMPORTANT NOTICE

In recent months the Committee has worked very hard to try to restart Collier Row bridge club on a face to face basis. Unfortunately it has proved impossible to generate more than 2 tables, indeed sometimes fewer than 8 players are available meaning that the session has to be cancelled at short notice. Clearly it is not feasible to run a bridge club on this basis. However, rather than simply abandon all efforts, resulting in the permanent loss of one of the last bridge clubs in the Havering area, the Committee has decided instead to suspend activities with effect from 5th November 2021 until the end of February 2022. In the meantime we will circulate the secretaries of all local bridge clubs to let them know that our premises remain available. We are aware that certain bridge clubs have been unable to restart on a face to face basis as they no longer have available venues. Taking over as the NRCA bridge section could be an attractive option for a club in this position. Being a section of the NRCA rather than a completely standalone Bridge Club means that the venue is cost free. To become members of the club, individuals simply join the NRCA. The table money of £3.50 per session is turned over in its entirety to the NRCA and any expenses of the club are met by the NRCA. Members benefit from free onsite parking and a subsidised licensed bar.

 

Any club interested in this arrangement, should contact the CRBC secretary (Helen Evans) on 01708 751074 (29dandh@gmail.com) and a meeting will be arranged to discuss this further. Existing CRBC committee members may be willing to stay on temporarily to assist an incoming club with the transition, but the club would remain their club, run their way, and their preferred day and time would be accommodated if at all possible.

 

Should there be no developments during the suspension period, a meeting of the CRBC committee will be held on 2nd March 2022 and should it be agreed that there is no prospect of the continued playing of bridge on the premises, the club will be wound up. At that point current members of the club would be invited to an Extraordinary General Meeting to discuss and agree terms for dissolution of the club (please note that “current member” means you have played during the April 2021-March 2022 period and that you are also a paid up member of the NRCA during that period).

 

WELCOME

 Welcome to the Collier Row Bridge Club web site. 

Collier Row Bridge Club is a constituent section of the North Romford Community Association and operates within the terms of the NRCA constitution (please see the information section of this website for a copy of the NRCA constitution and further information about the NRCA). Membership of the club is obtained by becoming a member of the NRCA. Current annual subscriptions are £25 for an individual (£20 if a Senior Citizen) and £40 for a family.

Bridge is played at the North Romford Community Centre, Clockhouse Lane, Collier Row RM5 3QJ, on Wednesdays at 7.30pm. We use bridgemate scoring and results are on display at the end of the session.  

Visitors are welcome. Table money is £3.50 and visitors are welcome to try the club on three separate occasions before deciding whether they wish to join.

There is free parking on site, and a licensed bar is available for use by centre users (including Bridge club members and visitors). Membership of the Association gives you full access to the Community Centre and its activities, as well as discounts on purchases from the bar and unlimited free parking in the centre car park.

Competition News

Unfortunately, playing of the Club Teams of 4 on 5th March 2020 had to be abandoned due to the failure of one pair to turn up. The competition was played instead on 12th March 2020, although there were only two teams. The winners were Stella Holland and Bob Robinson, Kit Charlton and Robert Elliott and the runners up Maureen Huntingford and Sue Sayer, Frank Hall and John Sayer.
