BARBARA HUXSTEP

It is with great sadness that we have heard that Barbara Huxstep died on Friday 9th February.† She had been a member for many years and supported the club both on the committee and in other ways, always sharing her enjoyment.† Together with her partner Bert, she played in a Yorkshire League team and also organised and ran the Barbarians team in the HDBL. †We knew that Barbara had suffered a severe stroke a few weeks ago and had remained in hospital where she passed away peacefully.

The funeral will be held on Friday 8th March, 1.00pm at Stonefall Crematorium. There will be refreshments afterwards (no details yet).

EBU Rule Changes 2023

From 7th August 2023

The EBU has introduced some new alerting, announcing and bidding rules.

The content of these books applies to all events held on or after 7th August 2023. Please be tolerant of players who donít get all the updated procedures exactly right straight away Ė itís meant to be an exercise in informing your opponents of your methods, not an excuse for trying to get one over on them!

Best Behaviour at Bridge


The committee would like to take this opportunity to remind players that 'Best Behaviour at Bridge' must be adhered to at all times.† This is essential to ensure that all our members enjoy their games of bridge.† Please take the time to read the new 'Best Behaviour at Bridge' statement from the EBU. †Click here to go to the tab.
