More than 50 players return for first club night

Following 18 long months of pandemic induced on-line fayre, Stansfield bridge club returned to the village hall for the ‘real’ thing on a recent Thursday - complete with Gerry’s incomparable nibbles and wine.

Although the club had completed a thorough risk assessment and put various precautions in place, it was anyone’s guess how many members would deem it safe enough to attend.

Nationwide the return to club bridge has been somewhat lukewarm. However, players started arriving soon after the doors opened and the final tally was 13 tables.

With every door and window open in the hall, the evening also attracted a bat who did a few laps of honour before departing into the night sky.

Tuesday afternoon sessions (4pm) have switched from BBO to RealBridge.

GOLF-BRIDGE DAY


After missing 2020 (no prizes for guessing why) the club staged its annual golf-bridge day at Newton Green recently.

It was the first time for 18 months that many players had seen each other in the flesh, as opposed to online via RealBridge.

A maximum field of 24 tackled 18 holes of golf, followed by a fish and chip lunch and then played 18 boards of bridge face to face. A most unusual experience!

Richard Langridge, the club's inestimable chief barman, and Paddy did a sterling job as the organisers and even arranged wonderful weather for the day.
