Stop Press News: We returned to face to face bridge at Abbey Row on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 13th July.
We look forward to welcoming you all you back to Abbey Row.
Polite reminder: if you are unwell with a temperature or are full of cold-like symptoms, you may wish to stay at home.
Jean Henry has very kindly agreed to resume her partner finding responsibilities, so if your regular partner is unavailable please give her a ring: 01573 224741.
Some Very Sad News to Share:
♥ Lee Leeson, aged 102, died on Tuesday of this week (26th July). He played at Kelso for many years with his wife "formidable bridge players both". Our thoughts are with his family.♥
♦ Lesley Dick died peacefully at Borders General Hospital on Friday afternoon (29th July). She was playing bridge at the club only the previous evening - and as usual achieving difficult contracts and making life hard for her opposition! She was her usual ebullient self. A former president - at least twice - and stalwart of the club, Lesley will be sorely missed by us all. Our thoughts are with her family - children and grandchildren from across the world. ♦
There will be a Service of Thanksgiving at 2.30 on Monday 15th August St Andrew's (and afterwards at Ednam House) , Kelso to commemorate ther lives of Lesley and her husband Rob. All welcome.
♥ Linda Douglas died in hospital in Australia (whilst visiting her son) on Friday afternoon (29th July). She had fallen and suffered a fatal bloodclot. It is the most extraordinary coincidence that she died on the same day as her long term bridge partner and friend, Lesley. Linda was an excellent bridge player and very encouraging of new members to the club. We will miss her and we pass on our commiserations to her family. ♥
We plan to hold the next AGM on September 7th and would love to hear from anyone interested in joining the committee/becoming the new secretary.
President: Sheena McPherson
