Aina Mitchell

Anita Ashby

We are sad to announce the death of Anita Ashby (02 Jan 2023) after a long illness. Proudly Welsh, Anita was a relative newcomer to the area. She came to the bridge club nearly ten years ago. Joining a class at the club run by Mick Clark, she made lots of friends and was soon a regular player. Always pleasant, considerate, and willing to help she loved playing especially Tuesday afternoons with Keith Wright. Our sympathies go out to David, her many friends and relatives.

Burns Night at No 44

We are to hold a "Burns night" session on Wednesday 25th January to celebrate the life and verse of Robbie Burns. Instead of the traditional Haggis, neaps, and tatties we will be having hot sausage rolls washed down with a dram of best Speyside Whisky. There will be a short reading from one of the better known Scottish poets at halftime and there will be of course prizes for the winning pair, prizes of a Scottish nature, but not shortbread, some of which will accompany the sausage rolls! This session will not run past 10:15pm and will start at 7:15pm. So, brighten up the dreary month of January and come on down! Kilts are optional but please-no claymores or sgian dhu.

Thank you Grant

New Thursday Morning Session

The first of what is hoped to be a long running session of morning bridge took place on the 12th. Both the bridge and the cake (A rather fine lemon drizzle ) went down very well indeed! This upcoming Thursday we have been promised flap jacks with our coffee at break time so why not come along for a game? The session is of course hosted and open to all. One of the key points identified by our board survey of a short time ago was the need for another day time game and so we now have one- with cake!

It is hosted – everyone is very welcome!
