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.

Teaching Children to play Bridge in Schools

Berks and Bucks County Bridge Association are looking for people to help teach children to play Bridge in local schools.  There are several schools, both at primary and junior level, where bridge is taught and they are desperate for helpers.  You do not need to be a top player to be a great help.  This is a very rewarding volunary job where you first teach MiniBridge and depending on the age of the children, you then move forward accordingly.  Sometimes this is a lunchtime club and sometimes after school.  If you can help please contact Nigel Thompson - doryandnigel@yahoo.com or tessa@tessabridge.co.uk
