I hope you are all well.
The Chair has sent this message to all members
'When circumstances allow and we are permitted to do so, the Club will resume Bridge at the Holy Name of Mary’s church hall.
Please keep checking the Club website for up-to-date information.'
We are following the guidance from the EBU with regard to restarting this year
From the EBU website March 12, 2021
Early Pointers about Restarting Live Bridge
The Government has produced a roadmap for easing out of lockdown and we present a few points of information from it here, to be supplemented once matters develop or become clearer.
- Community Centres and similar venues might be allowed to re-open from April 12th;
- However, as this does not allow any mixing of households indoors it will not be possible to meet as a Bridge Club at that point;
- The current expectation is that it will be June 21 (at the soonest) before all legal limits on indoor mixing will be lifted;
- The Government ‘roadmap’ indicates that there might be a ‘new normal’ even in the summer which will require some risk mitigations;
- The detail of any such necessary mitigations will be dictated by Government restrictions and recommendations, all yet to be made public, and local conditions;
- Being realistic, Bridge Clubs are unlikely to be able to restart face-to-face games of the sort they ran until a year ago, before the summer of 2021;
- The EBU are planning not to start running any face-to-face EBU tournaments until August.
I will keep members posted as to any developments.
