We are very sorry to have to report the death of Laurie, a longstanding member of the Club, who was well known and respected throughout Essex bridge. Our condolences go to Stephanie and his family. Please click here for a link to a tribute from Tony Philpott on the Essex County Bridge Association website. We understand that the funeral will be private.
If anyone is able to get to the Hub a bit early on Mondays and Thursdays to help with setting up tables and getting everything ready for a prompt start it would be much appreciated. Many thanks.
