AGM POSTPONED - CHAIRMAN'S LETTER

Dear all,

I hope this message finds you and your family and friends all fit and well.

As you know, we had scheduled our AGM for Tuesday 28th April 2020. It won’t come as a surprise, but it’s not going to happen! We have postponed the AGM until some time (in the not too distant future we hope) when we can all meet once againFor the moment we plan to distribute, and publicise on the web pages, papers which would normally have been presented at the AGM. This is planned over the coming week. 
Again, if any member wishes to be nominated to join the Committee, do please let us know. 
My thanks to everyone for establishing online bridge games. It isn’t the real thing but it’s certainly better than not playing.

Stay safe and healthy.
Very best wishes

Adrian
