County AGM - Thursday13th August 2020 - Online using Zoom

The County AGM will be held on Thursday 13th August 2020 @ 6pm via Zoom. The Zoom meeting will be hosted by Ken Johnston (please click Ken's name for an email link) and he will send out an invite to all who wish to attend the AGM. Please let him have your email address in good time.

We feel it is essential to close off this year. It will be a truncated meeting with the aim of approving the audited accounts and the re-election of the committee for those that are eligible. The county calendar for 2020/21 has been produced, but not published yet. We will make the decision on the publication as guidance is received from the EBU and the Government on when it is deemed safe to resume face to face bridge. There is a huge question mark over the Congress in March 2021 and whether we decide to go ahead or not. Lots of questions and not many answers as yet.

The County is needing to recruit 2 new members to the committee.

  • We require an Hon. Secretary, vital to the running of the association
  • We also require a committee member as there is a vacancy

It is essential we fill these two positions going forward. The association cannot function long term without a full complement on the committee to share the workload.  If you wish to take up one of the positions you will need to be proposed and seconded by a county member prior to the AGM

Those of you lucky enough to win prize money.this year for the events we managed to complete, fear not, you will receive it.......eventually.

I look forward to seeing you at the meeting,

Trevor Ward
County Chairman.

Coronavirus - Covid-19 Announcement


Firstly, we hope that all members of the County are safe and well and are managing to cope with the difficult times and changes we are currently going through.

Due to the advice that we have been provided regarding the current outbreak we have taken the difficult, but completely necessary decision, to cancel all internal County bridge events for the forseable future.  Currently, the only exception to this is the weekend event in September run jointly with Westmorland, a decision on whether this event goes ahead will be made nearer to the time.  We will of course update this website as and when anything changes.

In the meantime look after yourselves and each other.

Cumbria Congress 20-22 March 2020 - CANCELLED

Castle Inn Hotel
Nr Keswick
CA12 4RG

 Hotel Tel: 01768 776401

This event has been CANCELLED.

Due to the concerns of the Covid-19 virus - the demographic of our entrants, the close proximity of the playing conditions, the sharing of the cards and the fact that many of the entrants have already cancelled due to underlying health conditions - we feel we have no alternative other than cancelling this years event.

All entrants will of course be entitled to a ful refund of their entry fees.  Christine will arrange for this to happen for you - please help speed up this process by confirming your bank account details to her (monies will be paid directly into your account), or alternatively provide a postal address for her to send you a cheque.

Reminder :- If you have accommodation booked, and you no longer wish to travel, please remember to cancel it and check the cancellation policy.  If you are still going to spend the weekend in the Lake District, we hope you have a very enjoyable weekend.

This event has been CANCELLED.


The hotel is booked out for the Bridge, so if you need to book a room, you will need to call the hotel direct, and quote ‘Bridge Weekend’.  (No availability via their website).  Obviously, it will be on a first come, first served basis, so if you require a particular type of room we suggest you book early.

The Saturday Pairs is now a Blue pointed event.

Please click here for more details and to view our brochure for 2020.

If requested, I will endeavour to find suitable team mates for you, but a stand by pair will be available to make up a full team should the need arise.
