SOME GOOD NEWS

As you will have read in our recent Newsletter, the club is really struggling with numbers following on from the Covid epidemic and we are due to start paying rent this November.  We therefore applied for a Community Fund Lottery Grant to help the club rebuild attendance.  The application was for £10K for a 3-year project called Preston Bridge Club – Build Back Participation.  We have heard this week that we have been awarded the full amount.  As you may realise this is our 2nd grant from the Lottery, the last being in 2017 which was to help equip our re-furbished premises.  The club is very grateful to the Lottery for its continued support and also to all our volunteers who are helping the club through this difficult period.  To help rebuild the club we very much need new volunteers and if you are able to help in any way, however small –  TDing, acting as an ‘odd-bod’, dealing, tidying, helping organise competitions (big or small), helping with catering, cleaning etc, please contact a member of the Club Committee (contact details are on the website or click HERE).

Support Preston Bridge Club

Now that we have returned to face to face bridge it is obvious that it will be some time before there is a return to anything close to the pre-pandemic levels of face to face bridge. In fact it seems likely that there will be a very significant fall in numbers on a permanent basis.

If the club is to survive we need the support of members, there are two ways you can help.

The first is to return to face to face bridge although I appreciate that not everyone is ready for that.

The second is that if you are playing other online bridge please participate in the Lancashire online Pairs sessions see both our website and the Lancashire website. These provide several sessions a week for all abilities and table money after expenses goes to the club.

No other online bridge benefits the club, we do need your help.
