Welcome to the Gwent Bridge Academy Web Site.
Graham Jones President Gwent Bridge Academy
Graham Jones President Gwent Bridge Academy
Dear Committee and members,
It is with great sadness and regret that I must finally pack away my bidding box, throw in my cards and resign as the President of the Gwent Bridge Academy.
It has been a privilege and a pleasure to be the President for so many years.
Liz and I feel extremely fortunate to have been a part of the journey the club has taken.
When Barry died and left me with the responsibility of the Gwent Bridge Academy neither he, nor I, could have imagined it would grow to the club it is today and it has surpassed both mine and Barry's expectations.
However, none of this would have been possible without hard working, dedicated and supportive members who not only love the game but love the community the club serves.
We both have heavy hearts but we are in no doubt that the club will continue to flourish for a long time to come.
Liz and I have made many friends and we have even had the pleasure of holidaying with some. We have many wonderful memories which we will treasure.
Thank you for all those times you've allowed me to make a slam or a doubled contract, but more importantly thank you for your friendship and so many happy memories.
I wish you and the club every success in the future and thank you for making the Gwent Bridge Academy the best bridge club in Wales.
Liz and I will miss you all.
Graham.
