There will be no bridge on 12th December due to non-availabilty of premises.

Welcome to Henfield Duplicate Bridge Society

HDBS re-opened on 2nd September.

It was encouraging to see so many of you back for F2F bridge.

Thank you for getting us off to a good start.

We have decided to continue with the free play for the remainder of September and through October. This may be extended through November if warranted.

We do need to keep the momentum going so please don't hesitate to contact Shirley if you have been unable to find yourself a partner.

Playing conditions

Face masks will be optional. Double vaccinations will be mandatory. 
Hand sanitisers will be placed on each table. 
Doors and windows will be open where reasonable (bring warm clothes). 
Bidding boxes will stay with players during session, please bring your own if you have them. 
At the end of session tables will be stored by committee members, chairs by the caretaker. 
Hosting to be suspended, contact Shirley for partners on 01403710261 or mobile 97545246779 or email giving her as much time as possible. 
Boards will be shuffled and dealt before play by committee members only. 
North only to move boards where necessary. 
Although the kitchen will be open, please bring your own refreshments. 
September will be a trial period and will be free of charge. 
HDBS needs at least 5 tables to be enjoyable and to remain viable, fewer can only end in closure. So please encourage others, including guests, to attend as well as yourselves.
Players are asked not to arrive before 1:45 pm, so that we have time to get ready.

Geoff Jewson

Geoff Jewson, a stalwart for the club for many years passed away in Worthing Hospital recently.

He was a highly popular member, always willing to lend a hand and will be sorely missed.

Our condolences go out to Jo, also a highly popular member, in a similar mould.

On behalf of all the members of HDBC we are sending a donation to Parkinsons UK and we wish Jo and her family our very best wishes

Jane Ross

Sadly, Jane Ross passed away recently, due to an inoperable brain tumour. She was a cheerful and bright member who was always willing to assist whenever possible. Her presence will be sorely missed.
