Teaching at Duffield

Graham Jepson of Sheffield has initiated mini-bridge at William Gilbert Primary School at Duffield among a group of very enthusiastic and pleasant youngsters.  However, Graham needs to pass this on to someone more local.  If you, or anyone you know, would be interested in continuing with this work, please would you get in touch with Mary Marshall on 01335 360582.  Graham will be at the school for 2 more sessions, tomorrow and a week on Monday.  (The normal DBS check is mandatory but Graham assures me that the EBU would pay for this.)
