Free Seminar by Simon Cochemé

We have been offered an opportunity to run a free seminar given by Simon Cochemé in conjunction with RealBridge. Simon is the captain of the England Seniors team, and writes articles for bridge magazines around the world. 

We will be running this seminar twice - on Tuesday 10 August at 2pm and Thursday 19th August at 11am. Both sessions are identical.

New Beginner Courses and Free Taster Sessions

Do you know anyone who wants to learn to play Bridge? If so, then please encourage them to try one of our free Taster sessions which we’re running at the end of August (two online and one face-to-face at the club). Click here for details.

These will be followed at the end of September by a brand new year of ‘Bridge for All’ courses. These have been developed by the EBU and are based on the Acol bidding system. There will be two online and two face-to-face options (one of each for year 1 and year 2 courses). 

Most of our students come to us through the website or through personal recommendation so your spreading the word and encouragement means a lot. Please do mention the Taster sessions and classes to your friends, family, neighbours and colleagues. They can find more information on this website by clicking on the ‘Learn to Play Bridge’ box in the top right hand corner. 

Reopening the Clubhouse - factsheet and survey

With the progressive easing of Covid-19 restrictions, members may be wondering when and how we may return to play bridge face-to-face at the clubhouse.

HELP FOR THOSE THAT NEED IT

This is a busy and difficult time for us all.  Our priorities must reflect the need to look after the health and wellbeing of each other and do what we can to avoid spreading the virus.

We have set up a page in the “Members Only” section of the website to help those who are obliged to self-isolate and to enable those who are able and willing to help in some way to register their details and how they can help.  The members only section avoids individuals disclosing personal contact information on an open website. Here is the direct link.

If you have not visited the “Members Only” section before, here’s what you have to do.

Click on the  button in the top right corner of the home page and follow the instructions.

If you are not in one of the “at-risk” categories and your circumstances permit and you feel able, please sign up to help others. Offers of support will be much appreciated by everyone.

LEARN TO PLAY BRIDGE!
