Christmas Party - Thursday 15th December 2022

Our first Christmas Party since 2019 was held on Thursday 15th December 2022

We had 7 full tables, including two novice pairs - Veronica Kidd & Joan Stones - who braved their entry into club bridge, along with Preident Pat Levin & Penny Pennefather who more than ably manned the kitchen.

A great time was had by all - with mulled wine before play, some lovely bridge hands, a great supper and a fiendishly difficult quiz set by Ray Breen rounded off by Kevin Clarke's rendition of a christmas carol

We wish all our members a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year
