In accordance with government guidelines Oswestry Bridge Club meetings are suspended until further notice.
Members will be notified on this website, by email, etc., as soon as circumstances enable meetings to resume. Other local bridge events are also suspended until further notice.
In the meantime here are some suggestions to help keep you well watered, well fed, entertained and stimulated. Thanks to Pat and others (including a non-bridge player) for these. To add any further contributions and/or updates, please contact Pat R., Mike I., or send a message to via Contact Us in the main Menu.
