John Day's 80th

On the 15th July we managed to surprise John Day for his 80th birthday, though shock might be a more appropriate word.  In part it was shocking because we managed to have so many past and present members turn up to sing Happy Birthday (in a socially distanced way) on his driveway and blocking his street - but a big part of the shock was that we were some 4 weeks after his actual birthday!

This was down to a long delay in the delivery of his gift, a ukulele, which can be seen below.

It was absolutely fantastic to see so many friendly faces after so long in lockdown and I know John really appreciated the effort that everyone went to - so thank you everyone for coming out to make it a special occasion.  I also know that many people that would have loved to have been there were not able to be, for various reasons and many have contacted John directly for a chat.

John has asked me to put up a notice on the club's page to say a massive thank you for all the good wishes and wonderful present, so from him to you, THANK YOU.

John, you have been a stalwart and devoted servant to the bridge club for many, many years.  So from the members to you, THANK YOU!
