June Dixon – Honorary Life Member
June Dixon was awarded Honorary Life Membership of Grantham Bridge Club at the Social on Mon 20 June 22. This recognised not only the huge contribution that June has made to the Club over a period of more than 20 years through her service as a member of the Committee, a Team Captain and a regular supporter of the Club and its activities, but also the impact that June has had, and continues to have, on Bridge Education and Development in Grantham. June has introduced many existing Club members to the game through the courses she has run and she continues to mentor and teach a number of players through her Thursday and Friday sessions.
Club Summer Social - Monday 20th June
The Club Summer Social took place at Barrowby Memorial Hall on the afternoon of Monday 20th June 2022. Some 16 pairs, comprising members and their guests, took part in the event playing Chicago Bridge and it was a good opportunity for some members, who had hitherto only met online, to meet one another face to face. Congratulations are due to Dierdra Pickup and John Ronan who won the Chicago competition with a total score of 5420 points. Jackie and Tom Simpson were placed second with 4600 points and the full results are here. The prize for the last player to win a trick with the ♣ 2 became a closely fought battle and Neil Henfrey managed to win it back on the last hand of the afternoon.
Thanks are due to Carol Hulse for organising the Raffle, and all those who bought raffle tickets and donated prizes. The raffle, together with a very generous donation from a member, raised £400 for our chosen charity 'Blood Cancer UK'.
Finally, a huge vote of thanks is due to Jennie Rea whose idea this was and who took the lead in organising and setting up the event, including selecting the caterer - Sarah at Garden Yard in Grantham - who provided such delicious sandwiches and cream teas.
