We are very sorry to see Eileen retire as Treasurer and leave the Summertown BC Committee, but after 20 or so years as Treasurer she has deserved a rest!  We have sent her flowers and a gift voucher on your behalf, and here she is enjoying the flowers.

Many thanks to Judy Wesselbaum, who has agreed to take over as our new Treasurer.

Charity at Christmas
Charity at Christmas

For the second consecutive year, we are unable to have our annual Christmas party at Maison Francaise. However, the committee hope, very much, that you will all join us on RealBridge for some festive fun on Monday 6th December, at the usual starting time of 7pm.

There will be no charge for this event but this year we are supporting a  local charity: Charterville Care's Horticultural Therapy Nurseries and hope you might consider giving a donation, in lieu of table money.  Members are receiving an email with bank details for Charterville (or email Holly or Erica for the details).

Here is some more information about the charity.

Click here for pictures of Holly's recent visit to them in Cutteslowe Park - they have a Light Festival on 19th/20th November, sell Christmas trees and various other goodies suitable as Christmas presents.

Kay Bicknell

We are sad to report the death of Kay Bicknell, a member of Summertown and regular player until quite recently.  She will be greatly missed, and we send our condolences to her family and friends.

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.
