It is with regret that it has been decided to cancel all bridge for the foreseeable future. This decision has not been taken lightly but has been made, by the committee, in the best interests of the membership and their families.
I know there will be a lot of disappointment at this decision but we all have a duty of care to each other and this decision has been made following the best and latest medical advice, evidence and worldwide experience.
If you are aware of anyone who might not receive this notification please contact them and let them know.
Hopefully we will all get through this and be back playing bridge soon.
If anyone wants / needs to contact me please do so by email - firstname.lastname@example.org
I would particularly like to be kept informed if anyone is diagnosed as having contracted Coronovirus.
Best wishes to all
If you are suffering withdrawal symptoms from your lack of bridge you might be interested in playing some bridge on-line. BridgeClubLive (BCL) have set up a new “Club” facility for all the frustrated players out there. Basically it provides a subset of the wider site specifically for each participating club. We have set one up for Purley Bridge Club so that you can play bridge on line with other Purley club members.
There is a special offer at the moment (until 31 March) which gives non-EBU members use for the ridiculously low price of £1 for the first month. So get in quickly and try it out. Go to https://www.bridgeclublive.com , select “Subscriptions” , then “Price List”and sign up for the £1 offer (first item in the list)
EBU members i.e. those of you play at other clubs as well as Purley, there is a completely free offer of 50 days for you to explore. You need your EBU number, then simply complete this form on the BCL website to submit a few details and you can give it a try.
We have set up a new menu option on our Web Site on the left, namely “Bridge Online” which has more detail on how to join, guidance of playing on-line etc.
