Bridge Club was formed in February, 1949. Some of the founder members bought the present premises, at 17 Park Place West, in Sunderland. We celebrated our seventieth anniversary in 2019.
We are extremely fortunate to have such lovely premises, and owe those members a debt of gratitude. At the moment we play bridge five nights each week.
The Club does use CCTV for the purposes of crime prevention.
POTENTIAL CLUB IMPROVEMENTS
The committee is setting up two groups to report back with rcommendations for club improvements. They will also be examining how the work load within the club can be more equitably shared.
One group will look at the needs that were originally dealt with by the now defunct House Committee and will be coordinated by Anne Forster.
The other group will examine the playing side of the club and will be coordinated by Graham Cox.
If you would like to be a member of either of these groups please see the cordinator or me. The groups will operate for a fixed period of time so that this would not be a permanent commitment.
Secondly if there is any aspect of the club that you would like to see improved, again please contact us, let us know your ideas and we will look at them.

FINDING A PARTNER
As an alternative to ringing Adrienne, the website will now allow you to do this by computer, if you wish.
To help members with this new facility, the club has prepared an instruction sheet. Please ask for one when you are next at the club.
If you decide to try this, please let us know how you get along as we think that this method could be very useful, both to you and to the club.
