A very enjoyable evening was appreciated by all members attending.

SUNDAY 19th JANUARY

The seminar starts with a comprehensive topic discussion followed by specific practice hands demonstrating the correct bidding, lead and play.

The cost is £10.00 for members, £12 for visitors & £5 for students.  This includes light refreshments during the brief break.
