Our Spring 2020 weekend is 3 - 5th April at the Stratford Manor Hotel
The Stratford Manor Hotel is a 4 Star luxury Hotel with swimming pool and spa set in 22 acres of glorious Cotswolds countryside with a Par 70 golf course for your use just down the road. It is ideally placed for visiting the historic sites of Stratford and Warwick and enjoying the charms of the Cotswold villages. Also there is a regular bus service is available from outside the hotel into Stratford. We have booked a limited number of rooms due to the commitment required by the hotel and so we ask you to kindly reserve as soon as possible, so that, if possible, we can increase this.
OPEN TO NOVICES AND THE MORE EXPERIENCED
We will be running two bridge rooms. One will be for novices and the other normal duplicate sessions.
No bridge partner required and non playing partners are welcome.
Please contact Keith to make a reservation firstname.lastname@example.org

PARKING ON OUR MONDAY AND THURSDAY SESSIONS
Unfortunately parking has become a problem, especially at our Monday afternoon session at Chalfont Community Centre. We have therefore, again, rented the Scout Car Park which gives us plenty of extra space. 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 and Thursday 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.
Practice your new found skills by logging on to No Fear Bridge. Our students are entitled to a free trial. If you enjoy this website please ask Tessa for the special discount code.

What a wonderful job our Teams and their captains have done in the League of Eight. Thank you David Balderson and Neil Horley, for putting so much effort and time into getting the teams together and all your great organising and leadership.
The A Team Captained by David went up from Division 4 to 3 this season and have done really well as it looks like they might have come 5th out of 9 teams. This is a really exceptional result against some very experienced players.
For many, playing in the B Team was their first experience at Playing Teams, which needs a different approach to duplicate and requires practice. Neil and his Team gave the opposition a good run for their money and next year will see a very different result.
