Rekindling Bridge in Schools
..... see less

You can help us rekindle interest in Schools bridge.  Prior to the pandemic we provided teachers and supervisors to support the establishment of bridge sessions in schools across the counties; the events of the past few years meant these sessions went into decline. 

We would like to provide Taster Sessions in schools with the aim of starting a Bridge Club. ..........
