Welcome to Hutton Bridge Club
Coronavirus

FOLLOWING THE INSTRUCTIONS FROM HM GOVERNMENT, THE CLUB WILL BE CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE. A GREAT SHAME, BUT NECESSARY AS PART OF OUR COLLECTIVE FIGHT AGAINST THE PANDEMIC. HOWEVER ...

The On-Line club will meet each Monday at 19:30 until face-to-face bridge reappears. Click on this box for information on how to enter. Table money of 3$ is collected via your BBO account. 

To ensure a prompt start, please register your intention to play on BBO by 19:00, and ensure your $BBO account has sufficient funds!!

Cath Fox has had an excellent article on bridge during Covid-19, naturally focusing on the blossoming of the on-line game, published on 26th July 2020 in the Sunday Express magazine: Read it here! Some bloke called Tony French gets a mention. 

Club Introduction
Club Introduction

The main club sessions are at 19:30 every Monday and Wednesday (public holidays excepted) in the reception area of:-

Becket Keys School (formerly Sawyer's Hall College)
Sawyer's Hall Lane
Brentwood
Essex CM15 9DA.

See the "Information" page for directions: please take care using the postcode on your SatNav as it may take you on a wild goose chase up the Ongar Road.  

We are a friendly medium-sized club and are very welcoming of guests or visitors on all occasions. As well as the weekly club duplicate we host special events such as the Club Championship, EBU and Charitable Simultaneous Pairs, the Fledgling Fours and a Christmas party. We also have a welcoming and active social scene with an annual weekend holiday. The first Wednesday session of each month is known as 'Friendly First Wednesday' and is especially suited to the less experienced.

If new to the game you may learn to play bridge with us, we also offer coaching and mentoring and a Play and Learn session on Monday afternoons.

The club fields teams in all the major Essex and some national competitions and has been known to do well, please follow the menu buttons on the left for more information.

Lynn Rayment

It is with great sadness we have to give you the news that John's wife, Lynn Rayment, lost her long fight with illness on Sunday 6th September.

Without her support John would have been unable to commit to so much work with our committee most notably with teaching and our Play and Learn Club. Lynn will be known to many of you from time spent at Hutton Community Centre while John was with us, or from club functions or our club holiday. She passed away comfortably and peacefully, her struggle is now over and she is at peace. She will be missed but our hearts go out to John and we offer him our sincere condolences.

Update: Lynn's final journey will begin from her home at 2.00pm followed by a service at South Essex Crematorium at 2.40pm on Wednesday 23rd September. Due to Covid numbers are very restricted and a welcome to all is sadly not possible, however anybody who wishes to see the party leave or attend the service outside will be most welcome and there is a weblink to the service itself. There is a tea room and ample parking at the Crematorium. Donations would be prefered rather than flowers with the current situation in mind and also in recognition of the comfort and advice recieved from Saint Francis Hospice. This can be achieved via https://lynnrayment.muchloved.com, or via John who can also provide the weblink for the service.
