The third Oxford Junior Bridge Club Competition was held at the Oxford Bridge Club on the afternoon of Sunday 19th November when twenty-two children, aged 8– 14 years, descended upon the balloon decorated premises, generating laughter and good will.
Prizes were awarded in three categories: Mini Bridge, Novice Bidders and Experienced Bidders. Pat Lewis, Chairman of the Oxford Bridge Club, presented the prizes and warmly congratulated all the children.
