Cheque Presentation Garden House Hospice
Cheque Presentation Garden House Hospice

When f2f bridge restarted at the beginning of October our North Herts Area Hospice pairs session came to an end.

We were pleased to be able to present a cheque to the Garden House Hospice for £4600 raised in the last 9 months.

In 2020 we raised £3800 making the total during online only bridge sessions £8400.

Thanks to all members of HItchin and nearby clubs for their support.

John Mathews

It is with great sadness that I have to report the sudden death of John Mathews yesterday.

John was a gentle and considerate person and a well liked and respected bridge player and club member.

As a previous Chairman of the St Albans Bridge Club for many years he contributed significantly to the development and friendly ethos of that club.

He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.

 

 

 

Bridge Nursery Rhyme

Two and fifty cards were placed into a pack, 

Half of them were red and half of them were black.

When the pack was dealt the Kings began to cry

They knew they'd lose to aces and the Queens would qualify.

The ten was at the table counting out his tricks,

The Jack was in the dummy playing politics.

The nine was with declarer in the devil of a hand.

The awful distribution was not what he had planned.

The eight was quite nefarious as were the three and two,

All the missing numbers gave him far too much to do.

The robots at the table were laughing as they played,

You should have seen their faces when the contract made.

Beginners Bridge Course

The club's new beginners course for 2021/2022 started on Monday 11th October at

Our Lady's RC church hall 16 Nightingale Road Hitchin.

The course runs over 3 terms each of 10 weeks.

The cost is £60 per term but no payment will be requested until week 3 of the first term

giving time for students to be sure they wish to learn to play this absorbing and challenging game.

At the end of the course the opportunity for supervised practice playing sessions will be available for several weeks and thereafter students will be encouraged and supported to move into regular club bridge. 

There was an excellent attendence on the first evening but it is still possible to join the course if you register during October.

Interested - contact Margaret - mee.hitchin@ntlworld.com or call 01462 623447
