Tessa Templeton, RIP
Tessa Templeton, RIP

You will all be very sad to hear that Tessa died on 25th May 2021 after a long and bravely fought battle with her illness.  She was a much loved and respected lady in the Bridge world where she tutored so many people, always keen to engender them with her deep seated love of the game.  Everybody who came in to contact with her will, no doubt recall her cheery smile and manner throughout, whilst maintainging that competitive edge. Her legacy will live on through the club that she originally established. Our thoughts are with David, her family and friends.

Where  The Tony Graham Room, Chalfont St Peter Community   Centre

Car Parking

 

PARKING ON OUR MONDAY SESSION

To give us extra parking on a Monday, we have once again rented the Scout Car Park.  This can be reached by going into the entrance (over the little bridge) and turning right towards the Tennis Club.  The Scouts' building is the second building along and the gates to the car park will be open.  PLEASE, IF YOU ARE FIT AND ABLE, USE THIS SPACE on a Monday to allow others who visit the centre for other classes, to park their cars (some are elderley and disabled).  Your help would be greatly appreciated.

PARKING ON OUR THURSDAY SESSION

Unfortunately we are unable to rent the Scout Car Park on a Thursday.  There are a few extra spaces available if you go down the lane towards the Scout Building and through the gate.  You can then park on the right hand side opposite the green.  There is also the Pay and Display in the village, just a short walk through the play area.

Anne Baiocchi, RIP

Anne sadly died this week.  We all send our condolences to her family and friends.   Her bridge partner, Tony, has written the tribute below.

I will miss Anne. We have been bridge partners for over 10 years.

It was always a matter of a good or bad day at bridge being " It won`t change our lives"

So good or bad playing was swept gently under the carpet as we drove back to Wendover putting the world to rights and many other topics which I will remember with great fondness.

Anne was a joy to play with and together we made many friends at Chalfont Bridge.

She will be sorely missed but remembered with great affection by all who knew her.

From her Driver, Bridge Partner and Fond Friend.

Tony
