Congratulations to all three pairs.

We owe very special thanks to a significant number of people.

Brigitte Ebert and Liz O'Donnell did a fantastic job organising and serving the plated teas, plus doing a huge amount of tidying up.
Mick Green did an absolutely outstanding job of directing, with great skill and patience!
Jenny Garner did a huge amount of work tracking registrations and payments plus checking everyone in.
We are extremely grateful to all those who donated cakes (which everyone thought were excellent) and/or raffle prizes. This meant we kept costs to a minimum.
Graham Davison raised an exceptional sum from the raffle.
Thanks also to those who were unable to play but still made significant and much appreciated donations.
Not least, we also owe special thanks to the Spire church for renting the hall and kitchen to us at a very modest cost.

Overall, thanks to everyone's efforts, we raised very close to £800 for Phyllis Tuckwell Hospice, which is wonderful.

FREE BRIDGE LESSONS - STAGE 3 STARTING JAN 17 2023

It is fair to regard the Stage 3 lessons as more of an intermediate standard and will only be suitable for players already playing and having a good understanding of the game or for those who are progressing from the previous stages.
Lessons will be every Tuesday on ZOOM as from 17th January and will start at 2pm and repeated again at 7.15pm on the same evening but will be limited to 100 places at each lesson. If anybody needs more information, or simply wants to enrol their place, email Des King (kraftykeawyead@hotmail.com). PLEASE NOTE HOWEVER: any new players enrolling need to be registered by Wednesday 4th January 2023.

As the content of the lessons are individually formatted, they are also suitable for those players who wish to cherry pick, any or all of the lessons they prefer to attend.

More information regarding, the course content and a poster explaining everything is attached and can also be found on the FOBC website by clicking on this link STAGE 3 LESSON.
