Update on the Situation of Westcotes Bridge Club as at 8th May 2022

Although this website has not previously been updated to show this information, duplicate bridge in our Monday evening slot at St Oswald has been available for the last few months, and continues for the time being. These sessions are currently run by Steve Wright for Bradgate Bridge Club and are known as Bradgate and Friends. This is an arrangement with the County Bridge Club to provide combined sessions in circumstances when attendances at all clubs has been significantly reduced due to the Coronavirus Pandemic. In particular, these sessions are aimed at members of Bradgate, Westcotes and County bridge clubs, but are open to everyone. The arrangement was convenient for Bradgate while their usual venue was being refurbished and while Westcotes could not envisage sufficient attendance of our members to hold our own duplicate sessions in the usual (pre pandemic) way.

 

We are grateful to Bradgate (especially Steve Wright) and County for setting up this facility and making it available to Westcotes members.

 

However, we need to see MORE Westcotes members playing in these sessions as a prelude to Westcotes taking Monday evenings back and running as we did before the pandemic started. Bradgate are now expecting to return to their usual venue from 30th May onwards, and we are not yet seeing sufficient members attending to make up a viable session of just our own members. So, more of us need to start playing in the last few weeks of Bradgate and Friends, but it will need a significant come back if we are to have sufficient Westcotes members to make up a viable movement from 30th May onwards.

 

In this situation, the County club has agreed to temporarily run the Monday evening duplicates as County and Friends for a month after Bradgate leave us. The idea is to give us (Westcotes) time to build up our attendance, hopefully, to a level at which we can support a viable session on our own. This will take a considerable effort and goodwill from our members to get things going normally again.

 

So, how does the future look for Westcotes? At the moment we simply don't know; it requires enough members to want to come and play.

 

Hence, although it must be stressed that we need to see more members playing before then, there will be an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) of Westcotes Bridge Club on Monday 6th June at 6pm at St Oswald. This will be, of course, open only to Westcotes members, and is nothing to do with Bradgate or County bridge clubs, except to say that County would very much like us to restart as an independent club. There will be a combined session of County and Friends at 7pm on that date, but please don't wait until then; please attend as soon as and as frequently as you can, or there is an obvious danger that we won't be able to restart.

 

A formal notice and agenda for the EGM will be posted here shortly, and members can expect a phone contact in the next week.

Our Monday Clubnight moved to St Oswald on 15-Jul 2019

St Oswald is the main premise of the County Bridge Club.
We are grateful and privileged to have been offered the use of their Tournament Room.

This is not a merger of clubs; Westcotes Bridge Club remains independent.
We are simply hiring the room and facilities from County Bridge Club.
