DIGITAL COMMUNICATIONS

You will all be aware that digital communication is becoming the norm, particularly as a result of the recent lockdowns. Before lockdown the club communicated with its members mainly by means of hardcopy posted on the club noticeboard, and to a limited extent by news items on this Bridgewebs site. To bring the club more fully into the digital age, the Bridgewebs Member database has been activated and updated.

This will allow the Club to send bulk email messages to its members to advise of forthcoming competitions and other significant events.

To make the best use of the Member facilities, you need to log in to your account. Details are to be found HERE

Those club members who have never provided the EBU or the Club with an email address, or who may have recently changed their email address, will need to provide me with your name (as registered with the EBU) and your email address. You can send by email to Webmaster, or complete the form below.
