Christmas Charity

You will remember that before Christmas we asked our members to consider donating to a local charity: Charterville Care's Horticultural Therapy Nurseries.  You were tremendously generous. The Manager has just informed us that you donated a total of £411 and asks us to thank you profusely.  He will let us know when they have decided to which project the money will be channelled.

Thank you everybody for this support!  This charity makes a tremendous difference to many people's lives.

Bridge Bulletin

Here is this week's Bulletin, with many thanks to Steven Bliss, who didn't play himself but has nevertheless taken the trouble to go through the hands and write up some interesting ones for us.

Please do take care of yourselves - it's a minefield out there at the moment - and not just if you're in the Government. 

All the best for another week.

Eventual return to face-to-face

At the end of September some of the SBC committee met with Maison Francaise to talk about our possible return to playing face-to-face.  We had agreed in committee that - due to the reluctance of many members to return to face-to-face and a shortage of directors/scorers/keyholders etc - our current aim is to look at returning 'in the spring'.

The discussion with Maison Francaise was very positive.  I am pleased to report that they are happy to keep our slot open and continue to look after our cupboard full of equipment and have offered us a reduced rent, to enable us to see what attendance is like and generally get back on our feet.

So - barring further lockdowns - this is our current goal, and the committee will continue to keep the situation under active review.

Feedback gratefully received, particularly from anybody who might be willing to help with directing or scoring when the time comes.  We have a few willing people, but we need to cater for illness and holidays.
